Supreme Court sends notice to RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on plea challenging bail

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on a plea challenging the bail granted by the Jharkhand supreme court in one among the fodder-scam cases.

A bench, comprising judge of India SA Bobde, and Justices BR Gavai and Surya Kant, sought response from Yadav on the plea filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation.

The probe agency has challenged the July 12, 2019, order gone by the supreme court at Ranchi, saying it had "erroneously" suspended the sentence awarded by the court and released the RJD chief on bail in one among the fodder-scam cases.

The supreme court had granted Yadav bail within the case of fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar treasury on the bottom that he had served half his sentence of three-and-a-half years.
