  • RJD chief Lalu Prasad was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail and fined Rs 10 lakh by a special CBI court in a fodder scam case. PTI File

In the FIR lodged by a Hinoo resident named Sumit Yadav at Lower Bazar police station in Ranchi, Laxman and Madan have been identified as Ranchi residents.

Madan's friend, Laxman Yadav, who too has been sent to the Birsa Munda Central jail, had helped in Madan in carrying out the crime. He has no reason to snatch or steal, " Manoj Kumar, a tea-seller who knows Madan, was quoted as saying by TOI.

Laxman Mahto didn't have to, because Lalu Prasad's RJD was in alliance with the Jharkhand government at the time, and political influence could open the gates anywhere.

Lalu has been jailed for three-and-a-half years in a case linked to fodder scam involving the embezzlement of more than Rs 89 lakh in government funds between 1991 and 1994.

'Euphoric reception' for Rahul Gandhi in Bahrain
Gandhi said there was also a need to reform India's education system and his party also has a strategy to improve healthcare. The Congress party, he said is "the most tested ideology" that "brings people together and does not create any division".

Last month the anti-corruption court found Yadav guilty of fraudulently withdrawing almost $140,000 from the state treasury in a larger fraud dubbed the "fodder scam", which was worth about 10 billion rupees ($157 million). They were produced in court and sent to judicial custody. The next part of their plan was to land in the jail where the RJD boss is serving time. He said that their presence in the jail was coincidental and that the two had criminal case against them. However, the latest revelations have drawn criticism from rival JD (U).

This will be the third case in which judgment would be coming in the fodder scam case after Lalu Prasad was sentenced to three and half years jail in Deoghar case recently and 5 years in the Chaibasa case in 2013.

Dal spokesman and MLC Neeraj Kumar issued a statement in Patna: "Lalu is a person with feudal mindset who could make his party workers go to any extent to serve his personal interest". RJD spokesperson Shakti Singh Yadav said those who are levelling the allegations should show footage or some evidence to back the accusations. However the nature of offences for which they were in jail was not clear yet.
