The Jharkhand High Court on Saturday granted bail to RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav in the Dumka treasury case of the multi-crore rupees Fodder Scam, paving the way for his release from jail.
The bail was allowed to Lalu by Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh.
The court directed him neither to leave the country without permission nor change his address and mobile number during the bail period.
Lalu Prasad Yadav had acquired bail in three other cases of the Fodder Scam and was waiting for judgement in the instant case related to illegal withdrawal of Rs 3.13 crore from the Dumka treasury in the 1990s to come out of jail.
The septuagenarian RJD supremo was airlifted to AIIMS, New Delhi, in January in view of his bad health. According to reports, the grant of bail in the Dumka case means Lalu can return home after being discharged from hospital.
