Jharkhand High Court extends Lalu’s provisional bail by six weeks

Earlier in April, Yadav had pleaded before the Jharkhand High Court seeking three months bail for treatment to various illnesses related to the heart and kidney

Ranchi: The Jharkhand High Court on Friday extended the provisional bail of RJD chief Lalu Prasad in fodder scam cases for another six weeks on medical grounds.


Earlier in April, Yadav had pleaded before the Jharkhand High Court seeking three months bail for treatment to various illnesses related to the heart and kidney.

Lalu had filed a provisional bail petition in all three fodder scam cases which special CBI court had convicted him in this year.

The cases are related to fraudulent withdrawal of money from the Dumka, Deoghar and Chaibasa treasuries. Prasad has been convicted in the multi-crore fodder scam cases.

In 2013, the former Railway Minister was convicted in another fodder scam case related to the Chaibasa treasury.

The former Bihar chief minister was lodged in Birsa Munda Central Jail since 23 December, when a special CBI court convicted and sentenced him for a three-and-half-year jail term in a fodder scam case. Subsequently, he has been sentenced to varying periods in different fodder scam cases.

However, after developing several medical and health-related problems, he was admitted to Ranchi’s Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) on 17 March. Later, he was shifted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for better treatment from where Lalu was brought back to RIMS on 1 May.

The RJD chief was even admitted to the Asian Heart Hospital in Mumbai for treatment of his kidney and heart-related problems on 23 May.

He also reportedly suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure and is at present undergoing treatment.
