Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and former chief minister of Bihar, Lalu Prasad Yadav who is out on bail in alleged fodder scam case had landed in trouble as Central Bureau of Investigation has challenged the bail order in Supreme Court.
The Apex court will hear the matter on 25 August.
The investigative agency challenged orders of Jharkhand High Court that granted bail to the RJD president in four cases relating to multi-crore fodder scam (Dumka, Chaibasa, Doranda, Deogarh treasuries).
Lalu Prasad Yadav was convicted in the cases and his appeals lay pending in various courts.
CBI had sought that the Supreme Court cancels Lalu Prasad Yadav’s bail.
The 950-crore fodder scam relates to withdrawals made from multiple government treasuries for cattle fodder. Allegedly ‘fake’ bills had been issued by the Animal Husbandry Department to facilitate this.
