Lalu sentenced to 3.5 years in jail in fodder scam case

RJD leader Lalu Prasad has been lodged in Birsa Munda central jail since his conviction in the fodder scam case on 23 December

RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav who has been recently convicted by the special CBI court in the fodder scam case is sentenced to Three and half Years in Jail and also imposed Five Lakh Fine.

RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav was convicted by the court on December 23, 2017, in a Rs 950 crore fodder scam case. The court also imposed Rs 5 Lakh fine on Lalu. The sentencing was heard via video conference.

He also added that they will approach the High Court for bail.

However, the court could not pronounce the quantum of punishment on January 5 as well and the sentencing deferred for one more day.

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court had on December 23 convicted the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and 15 others in a case relating to the multi-million-rupee fodder scam.

The 69-year-old RJD supremo, in a written plea on Thursday, had sought leniency from the CBI court citing illness and old age, according to his counsel Chittaranjan Prasad.

JDU on Saturday welcomed the fodder scam verdict and hailed it as historic decision in Bihar politics. Trial began before the special CBI court, Ranchi in February 2002. He was sent to Birsa Munda Jail in Ranchi.

Three former IAS officers - Beck Julius, Phoolchand Singh and Mahesh Prasad - were given a prison term of three and-a-half years each.

Eleven of them died and three turned approvers, while two other accused confessed and were convicted in 2006-07, a CBI official said. Lalu Prasad was convicted for fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89 lakh from the Deoghar treasury during 1991-94.
