  • Special CBI Court Proposes Open Jail For Lalu Yadav Where He Can Rear Cattle

The court had, however, acquitted six others including former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Mishra in the case.

RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and 15 others were convicted in a fodder scam case. His son Tejashwi Yadav said that they will approach the high court and also apply for bail after studying the sentence.

After the verdict, BJP and its ally JD (U) had said that no one was above law.

"The court has awarded three-and-a-half years jail to Lalu Prasad and ₹10 lakh fine to him".

In Patna, the RJD held a meeting of party leaders at the 10, Circular road residence of Rabri Devi, in which party leaders imposed faith in party chief Lalu Prasad.

"We are confident that he (Lalu Yadav) will get bail".

Lalu was found guilty in another fodder scam case in 2013 after which he had to resign from his Lok Sabha seat. When Lalu Prasad moved the Supreme Court against high court order, the SC ordered the Patna High Court to monitor the investigation. The party is unbreakable and it stands strong with Lalu Yadav, said former deputy chief minister of Bihar while addressing the media.

The court had also heard arguments on the issue of punishment for 10 others convicted in the case. The 1997 fodder scam case had virtually brought down his political career.

The quantum of punishment was pronounced on Saturday after being postponed twice this week.

Eleven of them died and three turned approvers, while two other accused confessed and were convicted in 2006-07, a CBI official said.

Lalu has been sentenced in the case relating to embezzling of more than Rs 89 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury between 1991 and 1994.
