Jharkhand High Court on Friday granted bail to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Prasad Yadav in connection with the fodder scam case relating to Deoghar treasury. The Jharkhand High Court granted bail to RJD Boss after he deposited two bail bonds of ₹50,000 each.

While the Jharkhand Court also directed Lalu Prasad Yadav to deposit his Passport.

Earlier the Supreme Court, on April 10, rejected the bail plea filed by the politician in connection to the cases of fodder scam. Lalu Prasad Yadav moved to the Apex Court challenging the Jharkhand High Court‘s order that has rejected Bail of a plea of Yadav who is an accused in Fodder Scam. Yadav cited his age, deteriorating health, and the Lok Sabha elections as grounds for seeking bail before the Top Court.

Former Bihar Chief Minister has time and again approached the Court seeking bail on Medical Grounds.

RJD Chief was lodged in a paying ward of the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences in Ranchi. He was convicted in connection to the cases of multi-crore Fodder Scam. He was in jail since December 2017.

The ‘Fodder Scam’, 1996 involves misappropriation of funds from the treasury of the Bihar Government.

It should be noted that without its National President, RJD who led the opposition alliance comprising CongressRLSPJitan Ram Manjhi‘s HAM, among others, faced a humiliating defeat in the national polls concluded on May 23.
