Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

RJD honcho Lalu Prasad Yadav, convicted in the fodder scam case, has received a major setback from the Jharkhand High Court. Lalu’s bail plea was rejected by the High Court on Friday.

The court of Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh rejected Lalu’s bail plea, saying he had not served even half of his sentence. Lalu got a seven-year sentence in this case. The court refused to grant Lalu bail on the grounds that half the sentence was not served. Lalu has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment in the Dumka treasury case.

Lalu Prasad’s bail was not being heard in the High Court for the last two weeks before the hearing of this case in the court of Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh.

Earlier on 8 November, the CBI had filed its reply in the court. CBI said that Lalu Prasad had filed a bail petition in the Dumka treasury case after spending a mere 22 months in jail, which was not even half his sentence.

Lalu Prasad was in March 2018 sentenced to 14 years in jail and fined Rs 60 lakh by a special CBI court in the fourth fodder scam case pertaining to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 3.13 crore from the Dumka treasury in undivided Bihar (before Jharkhand was created).

Earlier, the Supreme Court had dismissed his petition in this case.

As far as his health is concerned, doctors of RIMS are constantly monitoring it.

CBI said in its reply that, on the one hand, Lalu Yadav claims to ve suffering from 15 different diseases and, on the other, doctors could detect no threat to his life.

Lalu Prasad has been sentenced by the special CBI court in the illegal withdrawal case from Dumka treasury. Lalu had filed an appeal in the High Court against the court order, pleading for suspension of his sentence and granting him bail.

However, in July this year, the Jharkhand High Court had granted bail to Lalu Prasad Yadav in another fodder scam case while it was known the former Bihar chief minister would remain in jail as he was also serving sentence in two other related cases. Justice Apresh Kumar Singh had granted Yadav’s bail plea in the case relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from Deoghar Treasury on the ground that he has served half of his prison term of three-and-a-half years.
