Yet another D-Day for Lalu on Jan 24

Former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav arrives at the special CBI court in Ranchi from Birsa Munda Jail in Ranchi

The arguments in the Chaibasa case got completed in the court of special CBI judge S.S Prasad after Lalu Prasad was produced in the case today.

A special CBI court here will pronounce its judgement in the third of five fodder scam cases against RJD chief Lalu Prasad, who has been convicted in two of them, on January 24. He also appeared in RC38A/96 and RC47A/96 in the Special Courts of Shiv Pal Singh and SS Prasad respectively, added the advocate. The Chaibasa treasury case pertains to embezzlement of over Rs 30 crore in the early 1990s and around 50 persons are accused in it.

Lalu's counsel Chittaranjan Sinha said his client would filed an appeal next week against the verdict in the Jharkhand high court. Lalu then replied that being from Yadav community, he himself will make arrangement for curd. "They have been, after all, sent to jail after an inquiry by the police administration and it is for the administration to say something on the matter".

The judge had also said before sentencing Lalu that the former had been receiving calls seeking favours.

JD-U general secretary K C Tyagi said a new political chapter has begun with the court's decision and it means politicians will be afraid of committing any such wrongdoing. The nature of offences for which they were in jail was, however, not clear yet. In an attempt to convince the judge, Lalu pleaded "You have huge power". He also said that he did not utter a word while he was being sentenced, he added. "How would I eat Chura Dahi in jail", Yadav told the judge. "Thousands of party workers are ready to go to jail for Lalu", said Hari Shankar Yadav, party MLA from Raghunathpur.

The superintendent of Birsa Munda Central Jail, where the RJD boss is lodged since December 23 after his conviction in a fodder scam case relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar treasury 21 years ago, could not be reached immediately for comments.
