Patna: Former Bihar Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday appeared before Patna CBI Court in connection with the fodder scam.

The next hearing in the case will be held on November 30.

In April earlier this year, the Jharkhand High Court granted bail to the RJD supremo in the case of fraudulent withdrawal from Dumka Treasury, one of the cases related to the fodder scam for which he was convicted. The Court also imposed the condition to deposit two sureties of Rs 1 lakh each and a fine of Rs 10 lakh.

He had already been granted bail in the Chaibasa Treasury Scam in October 2020, and in the Deoghar Treasury Scam case in February 2020. The trial in the Doranda Treasury Ranchi case is still going on.

The case pertains to the fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 3.5 crore from the Dumka treasury by Animal Husbandry Department officials between 1991 and 1996 when Yadav served as the State’s Chief Minister. (ANI)
