Fodder scam: Lalu Yadav gets 5 years in jail. Know what the case is all about

The case involves the illegal withdrawal of ₹ 139.5 crore from the Doranda treasury in the 1990s when Lalu Yadav was Chief Minister of Biha

A special CBI court on Monday sentenced RJD supremo Lalu Prasad to five years in prison and slapped a fine of Rs 60 lakh on him in connection with a fodder scam case.

The case involves the illegal withdrawal of ₹ 139.5 crore from the Doranda treasury, as part of the fodder scam that took place in the 1990s, when Lalu Yadav was Chief Minister of Bihar.

After his conviction in the case on February 15, the ailing 73-year old former Bihar chief minister was lodged in the Birsa Munda Central Jail and then shifted to state-run Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences in Ranchi.

The fodder scam refers to illegal withdrawals worth Rs 950 crore from various government treasuries for fictitious expenditure on fodder and other requirements for cattle during Lalu Prasad Yadav's term as Bihar chief minister.

Lalu Prasad Yadav was earlier sentenced to 14 years in jail in four other cases related to Dumka, Deoghar and Chaibasa treasuries in Jharkhand.

One more case linked to the fodder scam is pending before the CBI court in Patna. The case is on the illegal withdrawal of money from the Bank-Bhagalpur treasury.
