Fodder scam: Lalu, 26 others move HC

RANCHI (TIP): RJD chief Lalu Prasad and 26 other people convicted in the multi-crore fodder scam moved the Jharkhand high court against the CBI court’s judgment on October 17. Their lawyers filed separate appeals against the CBI special court’s sentence in the fodder scam. Some of the petitioners including Lalu and former RJD MLA R K Rana also filed for bail. Lalu is serving a jail term of five years at Birsa Munda Central Jail after being convicted on October 3 in one of the cases related to the fodder scam. JD(U) MP Jagdish Sharma and former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Prasad have not yet filed an appeal with the court. Appearing before the court of Justice R R Prasad, senior advocate and former advocate general Anil Sinha made a special mention of the appeal but the court refused to take it up saying the process was not right. The appeal petition was then filed with the registrar office.
