The appeal petition filed by former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad in the fodder scam case was heard in the court of Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh on Friday. On bail in the case of illegal withdrawal from the Dumka treasury, Lalu Prasad's advocate, Supreme Court advocate Kapil Sibal, sought 2 weeks' time to submit his reply on the CBI's reply, which was accepted by the court. December 11 has been set for the next hearing of the case.
A bail petition has been filed on behalf of Lalu Prasad Yadav in the High Court in the illegal withdrawal case from Dumka treasury. On behalf of him, half of his sentence has been sought in jail, citing cutting of 16 types of diseases including heart disease, kidney and sugar.
The CBI has filed a reply in the High Court citing Section 427 of the CrPC that Lalu Prasad Yadav has not been in jail for a day in the fodder scam related to the illegal withdrawal case from Dumka Treasury. In the case of a fodder scam in which Lalu Prasad Yadav has sought bail, half of the sentence he received from the CBI court in that case has not been completed.
Lalu Prasad Yadav is facing a total of five cases in Jharkhand. He has been convicted in four of these cases. Lalu has already got bail in two more Chaibasa cases in Deoghar, while in the Dumka treasury case he has filed a bail petition in the High Court. The trial in the Doranda treasury case is currently going on in the lower court.
