  • Fodder scam: SC issues notice to Lalu Prasad Yadav on plea challenging bail

    Published on February 14, 2020

    The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to Rashtriya Janata Dal Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on a plea challenging the bail granted by the Jharkhand High Court in one of the fodder-scam cases.

    A bench, comprising Chief Justice of India S A Bobde and Justices B R Gavai and Surya Kant, sought response from RJD Chief on the plea filed by the CBI.

    The probe agency has challenged the July 12, 2019, order passed by the high court, saying it had erroneously suspended the sentence awarded by the trial court and released the Lalu Prasad Yadav on bail.

    The high court had granted bail to Lalu Prasad Yadav in the case of fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar treasury on the ground that he had served half of his prison term of three-and-a-half years.
