    NEW DELHI: A special CBI court in Ranchi on Monday convicted former Bihar chief minister and RJD president Lalu Prasad in a case related to fodder scam.

    The quantum of sentence in the case will be announced on October 3.

    Lalu faces immediate disqualification as a Lok Sabha member as a recent Supreme Court order said that an MP or MLA would stand disqualified immediately if convicted by a court for crimes with punishment of two years or more.

    The case, RC 20 A /96, involves Lalu Prasad, another former Bihar CM Jagannath Mishra, JD (U) MP Jagdish Sharma and 41 others, including four retired IAS officer and a former Income-Tax commissioner.

    In this case, the accused have been held guilty of fraudulent withdrawal to the tune of Rs 37.7 crore from Chaibasa treasury in the 1990s. Chaibasa was then part of undivided Bihar.

    All the other accused including another former chief minister of Bihar, Jagannath Mishra, have been convicted in the case.

    Lalu Prasad, 44 others convicted in fodder scam case

    Lalu Prasad, 44 others convicted in fodder scam case

    A CBI court on Monday convicted RJD leader Lalu Prasad and 44 others in the fodder scam case that will not only decide the fate of Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad, the main accused, but also shape the future of Bihar politics.


    Lalu Prasad faces upto 3-7 years in jail. The quantum of sentence will be announced after 2pm.

    The fodder scam is a series of fraudulent transactions in the department, totaling about Rs. 950 crore.

    Prasad and 44 others were charged with fraudulent withdrawal to the tune of Rs. 37.7 crore on fake fodder bills from Chaibasa treasury in the 1990s in a case lodged by CBI. Chaibasa was part of undivided Bihar then. Former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Mishra and JD(U) MP Jagdish Sharma were also charged in the case.

    Earlier, the Supreme Court had rejected Lalu's plea to transfer the case since CBI judge Pravas Kumar Singh is a relative of a Bihar minister. But, the apex court had rejected.

    Very welcome judgment & it has clearly delivered the message that no one is above law in this nation. This will be the first step towards achieving clean politics in our nation & it will certainly strengthen the confidence in our legal system. However in order to deliver this judgement, we did take more than 15 year. Hope now onward, the judgement in such cases related to corruption will not delay like this.
    Yet to remember that none of are convicted from Bofors to Augusta westwald like corruption case.

    'Framed' Lalu Prasad Yadav will prove innocence in fodder scam case: Digvijay Singh

    Expressing his sadness over Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav’s conviction in connection with the multi-crore fodder scam, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh said the former will provide evidences of his innocence before a higher court.

    “I am sad about the fact that Lalu Prasad Yadavji has been found guilty. He has been framed. And, I am hopeful that he will provide evidences in the higher court to prove his innocence,” Singh told media here.

    “He has been a trusted and an old partner of the Congress Party,” he added.

    In a major blow to RJD before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Lalu was today convicted by a special CBI court in Ranchi in a fodder scam case that disqualifies him from Parliament and renders him ineligible for contesting elections for at least six years.

    The RJD chief, who faces a minimum jail term of three years and a maximum of seven years, has now been taken into custody and taken to Ranchi’s Birsa Munda Jail.

    As per a recent Supreme Court verdict, a legislator convicted in a case where the minimum sentence is two years in jail will lose his or her seat immediately.

    Another 44 accused, including former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra, six politicians and four IAS officers, were also convicted by court of Pravas Kumar Singh for fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.7 crore from Chaibasa treasury.

    The court has fixed October 3 for pronouncement of sentence against Yadav, Mishra and others.

    The fodder scam also known as "Chara Ghotala" involved the siphoning of funds from the Bihar Government treasury. The alleged theft spanned over several years, and many Bihar state government administrative and elected officials across multiple administrations were allegedly engaged in it.

    The fodder scam was unearthed in Bihar in 1996 when Lalu Prasad was the Chief Minister of the state. He had resigned from the post in 1997 after a court issued an arrest warrant against him in connection with one of the cases.
