Lalu Prasad Yadav sentenced 14 years jail in 4th Fodder Scam

In the fourth case related to the Dumka Treasury of the Fodder scam, a special CBI court in Ranchi on Saturday sentenced former Bihar Chief Minister and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav to two sentences of 7-7 years for different sections. That is, he was sentenced to 14 years. Along with this, he has been fined Rs. 60 lakhs. In the event of not filling the fine, their punishment will increase for one year. Special Judge of CBI Mr. Shivpal Singh sentenced Lalu Prasad seven years imprisonment under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, under multiple sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act and Prevention of Corruption Act, in connection with the dacoity case of Dumka Treasury. The two sentences narrated by a special judge of CBI will move one after the other. Lalu Prasad was thus given 14 years of imprisonment. Apart from this, he has also been fined six million rupees.

Lalu was unable to appear before the court while being sentenced to rims in Ranchi hospital in Ranchi. Therefore, the judge declared his sentence only in the presence of his lawyer. After the court’s decision, Lalu’s lawyer told that the sentences of 7-7 years narrated under Lalu to different streams would go separately. He said that we would approach the High Court against this decision. Explain that Laloo Yadav has convicted Lalu Prasad on Monday (March 19th) in the fourth case of the fodder scam.

In this case, former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra was acquitted. Judge Shivpal Singh ruled from December 1995 to January 1996 the case of removing 3.13 crore from the Dumka Treasury fraudulently. The verdict was to be declared on March 15, which was extended four times earlier too. The judge pronounced his verdict according to alphabetical order, but Lalu Yadav reached court after the verdict was pronounced. Mishra was present in court even though he was sentenced. The much-anticipated decision of the special court of the CBI against 31 people in the case of the Rs 3 crore, thirteen lakh rupees in the case of fodder scam, came afternoon on Monday (March 19), in which special CBI judge Shivpal Singh, along with Lalu 19 convicted. In the absence of evidence, the former Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra, former MLA Dhruv Bhagat, former MP Jagadish Sharma, former minister Vidya Sagar Nishad, former MLA RK Rana, ordered 12 people to be acquitted in the absence of evidence.

The case was first filed in 1996 in the fodder scam. At that time there were 49 accused in the case. 14 cases were registered during the trial. The court on Monday convicted 19 of the 31 accused and acquitted 12. Lalu Prasad was jailed for five years in the first case of the fodder scam in 2013. He was sentenced on December 23, 2017, in another case and sentenced to three and a half years. After the separation of Jharkhand from Bihar in 2000, all cases related to the fodder scam were transferred to Ranchi.
