Fodder scam sentencing: Lalu Yadav's son Tejashwi targets Nitish Kumar

A special CBI court in Ranchi on Saturday sentenced Lalu Prasad and 7 others, namely Phool Chand, Mahesh Prasad, Bake Julious, Sunil Kumar, Sushil Kumar, Sudhir Kumar and Raja Ram, to 3.5 years imprisonment and Rs5 lakh fine each in the second fodder scam case.

A total of six cases related to the scam, were being probed by the investigation authorities.

The quantum of sentence was announced by the CBI court after a delay of two days via video conferencing.

The Bihar Congress on Saturday asserted that Lalu Prasad's conviction in a fodder scam case will not have any impact on the party's ties with the RJD in the state. Post verdict, Prasad was taken into custody and taken to the Birsa Munda Prison in Ranchi. Lalu has been convicted in the Deoghar Treasury case.

"Come what may Lalu will never get scared, nor will he even kneel down". Trial began before the special CBI court, Ranchi in February 2002.

He handed it to Tierney, who easily converted the gift into his ninth goal of the season to tie the score. Kadri scored on a power play midway through the second for his 14th goal.

Tejashwi, against whom a contempt notice has been issued by the CBI court for criticizing its December 23 judgement whereby Lalu was convicted, said, "The lower court has pronounced its judgement which we respect".

He was fined Rs 5 lakh for each case, failing which he would serve another six months in jail, a CBI counsel said. However, it did cost him his Lok Sabha seat.

He also added that they will approach the High Court for bail.

Earlier in the day, Lalu's wife Rabri Devi has called an emergency meeting to decide the individual roles for party leaders in likely absence of the RJD chief. He has been accused in five cases of fodder scam and convicted in two.

"This is the end of a chapter that started with Laluji's leadership, where there was politics of corruption, nepotism and non-governance", Tyagi told reporters.
