Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav has received a setback from the Jharkhand High Court once again. The court deferred hearing on his bail plea for six weeks. Lalu Prasad sought time to submit a certified copy of the sentence. After this, the court gave him six weeks.
Let us know that on Friday, the bail application of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, convicted in four different cases of fodder scam, was heard. Earlier, the CBI had filed Lalu Yadav’s problems by filing an application in the High Court. Lalu was requested to send him to jail from RIMS in Ranchi complaining of violation of jail manual.
Hearing on the case related to the illegal withdrawal of Rs 139 crore from Dumka Treasury was held today. The RJD hoped that Friday would be a relief for party workers. Party spokeswoman Smita Lakda said that she hoped Lalu Yadav would get bail today. If Lalu Yadav had got bail today, the way out of his jail would have been cleared, as he has already got bail in three cases related to the fodder scam.
Meanwhile, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed a supplementary chargesheet in the Jharkhand High Court on Thursday before hearing the bail plea. The CBI said that Lalu has consistently violated the jail manual. His health is also stable now. Therefore, he should be sent to Birsa Munda Jail from Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Ranchi.
Lalu’s bail plea in the embezzlement case from the Dumka treasury of the fodder scam was heard by a bench of Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh on Friday. Let me tell you, an FIR has also been lodged against him in Patna in connection with the alleged call made by Lalu Yadav to a BJP MLA from RIMS during the election of speaker of Bihar Vis during judicial custody.
