Row over Lalu 'aides' in jail

  • Lalu Yadav

A special CBI court in Ranchi, which is hearing one of the four cases of the two decades old fodder scam, is likely to pronounce its verdict on January 24.

This is the second time that he has been jailed in the fodder scam. The conviction means he can not contest an election and he faces at least one more case.

JD-U general secretary K C Tyagi said a new political chapter has begun with the court's decision and it means politicians will be afraid of committing any such wrongdoing.

Reacting to the report, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Kumar Modi said that Yadav first stole money from the poor people of Bihar and now he was using them once again to act as his servants in the prison.

Lalu was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail by special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in the case relating to embezzling of more than Rs 89 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury between 1991 and 1994.

RJD spokesman Shakti Singh Yadav trashed the allegation that Lalu "managed" to have his two aides behind bars to serve him, saying their presence in jail was "coincidental", and the two had criminal cases against them.

Yadav, 69, is a former railways minister and ex-chief minister of the impoverished eastern state of Bihar where he enjoys huge popular support for championing lower castes.

After spending two months in jail, he was granted bail.

Three former IAS officers - Beck Julius, Phoolchand Singh and Mahesh Prasad - were given a prison term of three and-a-half years each.

"Police should probe how the two got jailed".

The court had also heard arguments on the issue of punishment for 10 others convicted in the case.

There are six cases of fodder scam going against Lalu, 5 in Jharkhand and 1 in Patna. He was sent to prison for five years on September 30, 2013.

A senior Ranchi Police official said an inquiry has been launched into the matter.
