Supreme Court dismisses Lalu Prasad Yadav’s bail plea in fodder scam

Lalu Yadav

New Delhi, April 10: The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected bail plea of former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad in the multi-crore fodder scam case.

The fodder scam, exposed in 1996, involved the embezzlement of around Rs 1,000 crore from the state exchequer for the purchase of fictitious medicines and fodder for cattle in the early 1990s.

The RJD chief has been lodged in Ranchi’s Birsa Munda Jail since a Central Bureau of Investigation court convicted him in three cases related to the scam. He already faces more than 13 years in jail.
