Lalu is presently lodged in Birsa Munda Central Jail after a special CBI court of Shiv Pal Singh on January 6, pronounced 3.5 years' jail and also slapped a fine of Rs 10 lakh for him in fodder scam case RC64A/96, related to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89, 4417 lakh from Deoghar Treasury with the help of 6 fake allotment letters during 1991 to 1994.

The hearing of this particular case, relating to fraudulent withdrawals of Rs 3.13 crore from December 1995 to January 1996 from the Dumka treasury, was completed on March 5.

Lalu Prasad on Thursday filed a fresh petition in the court of Shivapal Singh to make then Auditor General in the CAG office an accused. The CBI Court was to deliver final judgment in the case on Thursday itself, but was deferred till Friday, after the RJD chief pleaded before it to dispose of his petition ahead of the final judgment in the case.

Latching on to a media report claiming that an FIR was filed against RJD chief Lalu Prasad despite CBI's legal wing saying there was no proof, the Congress today accused the BJP of engaging in political vendetta against its opponents to hide its "epic failures". Among the 29 accused facing trial are Lalu, and Jagannath Mishra, another former chief minister of Bihar. However, on March 14, the RJD leader's counsel filed the plea seeking that the then accountant general (AG) P K Mukhopadhayay, senior AG Pramod Kumar and Deputy AG B N Jha be summoned as accused in the case under Section 319 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

Lalu Yadav was first convicted in a fodder scam case in 2013 and was awarded five years' imprisonment.

Logic & Wife Jessica Andrea Split After Two Years Of Marriage
According to TMZ , rumors began to swirl when fans noticed Jessica unfollowed Logic on Instagram , although he still follows her. While the couple has yet to officially file divorce documents, reports claim a reconciliation doesn't seem likely.

Lalu, who is now lodged jail, was on December 23, 2017, convicted for 3.5 years in the second fodder scam case.

Earlier, Mr Yadav was convicted in three fodder cases while Mr Mishra was convicted in two fodder cases.

The CBI had alleged that when Yadav was railway minister in 2006, he ensured that a tender for developing and running two railway hotels in Ranchi and Puri be awarded to a "benami" company owned by the wife of an RJD MP.

The multi-million rupee fodder scam surfaced in the 1990s when Lalu Yadav was Chief Minister of undivided Bihar. However, the CBI had opposed the petition saying the defense had already approached the High Court on this issue, but the latter had disposed of the matter, without passing any order to this effect.

The cases were transferred to Ranchi after Jharkhand was carved out of Bihar in 2000.
