Ranchi: The Jharkhand High Court has rejected RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav’s bail plea in fodder scam cases on Thursday.
The CBI lawyer Rajeev Sinha said Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh has turned down the bail plea of Yadav.
According to reports the same court had on January 4 reserved its order on the RJD supremo’s bail plea after hearing arguments of his counsel Kapil Sibal and that of the CBI.
The RJD chief Yadav is currently lodged in a paying ward of the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) here.
Reports said the fodder scam is related to fraudulent withdrawal of government funds from the treasuries of various districts of undivided Bihar in the 1990s when RJD was in power. He was the chief minister of the state then.
