Fodder Scam: CBI moves Supreme Court against bail to Lalu Prasad

NEW DELHI: The CBI has approached the Supreme Court against the bail granted to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad in cases, related fraudulent of public money from government treasury, linked to fodder scam.

Additional Solicitor General S V Raju on behalf of the CBI mentioned its appeal before a bench headed by Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud for urgent hearing. 

The court agreed to list the matter on August 25. 

The CBI has approached the apex court against the Jharkhand High Court’s April 22, 2022 order granting bail to Yadav in the case.

The Jharkhand High Court had granted bail to Lalu Prasad in the Doranda Treasury case, related to the fodder scam, in which a CBI special court had sentenced him to five years in prison.

74-year-old Yadav is presently temporarily out on bail because of ill health after his conviction in different fodder scam cases.

He was convicted in five fodder scam cases pertaining to the fraudulent withdrawal of money from Deoghar, Dumka, Chaibasa, and Doranda treasuries in Jharkhand.

In April 2022, the Jharkhand High court granted bail to Lalu Prasad as he had already served 41 months in custody, which more than half the period already served in this case.
