A special CBI court in Ranchi has convicted former Bihar CM and RJD president Lalu Prasad in the fodder scam, though the sentence will be announced on October 3. Lalu faces immediate disqualification from Lok Sabha as per a recent Supreme Court order. The case, RC 20 A /96, involves Lalu Prasad, another former Bihar CM Jagannath Mishra, JD (U) MP Jagdish Sharma and 41 others, including 4 retired IAS officers and a former IT commissioner.

 

 

In this case, the accused have been held guilty of fraudulent withdrawal Rs 37.7 crore from the Chaibasa treasury in the 1990s. Chaibasa was then part of undivided Bihar.
