Judgement in third fodder scam case against Lalu Prasad on Janunary 24

Lalu to seek parole to attend sister's last rites Top Indian politician jailed over corruption scam

The RJD jumped in defence of its leader and said that the presence of the two, Laxman Mahto and Madan Yadav was a mere coincidence.

Hours before Lalu's arrival at the jail, Laxman Mahto and Madan Yadav, known to be Lalu Yadav's personal aides, surrendered before the police in a case of theft and beating up a neighbour. Laxman, however, was not arrested at that time because with a friendly government in Jharkhand, access to Lalu in prison was available to each of his supporters at the time, reports said.

The superintendent of Birsa Munda Central Jail, where the RJD boss has been lodged since 23 December after his conviction in a fodder scam case relating to the fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar treasury 21 years ago, had not commented at the time of writing.

Interesting events have come to light in the wake of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav's incarceration in Ranchi's Birsa Munda Central Jail. "How can he claim to be a leader of the poor and the backward when he gets two workers land in jail on the basis of a false case just to serve him?"

However, RJD spokesperson Shakti Singh Yadav has said that though the accused are RJD party men, they are not close to the RJD chief. However, the latest revelations have drawn criticism from rival JD (U). After the FIR was filed both of them surrendered, both were produced in court and were sent to judicial custody.

Acer Swift 7 (2018) initial review: The laptop gets smartphone thin
The gaming laptop, Acer Nitro 5 will hit North America in April with a base price of $799 and EMEA in April this year. Alongside the chip is 256GB of PCIe-based solid state drive and 8GB LPDDR3 RAM alongside fingerprint reader.

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.

"This shows that Lalu Prasad's commitment to social justice is a sham and he cares only for himself and his family members", Kumar, a JD (U) MLC, said.

The local daily claimed that Mahto and Yadav were serving Lalu as helper and cook. The nature of offences for which they were in jail was, however, not clear yet.

They got themselves a place in the same jail where Lalu was later sent on January 6 to serve three and a half years of imprisonment.
