A special CBI court on Wednesday convicted former chief minister of Bihar and the chief of the Rashtriya Janata Dal Lalu Prasad in the third fodder scam case. Sixty nine-year-old Lalu Prasad Yadav is currently in the Birsa Munda Jail of Jharkhand.

This could further affect the political future of the party, which is no longer part of the ruling combine after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar upstaged Lalu and latched on to the BJP.

CBI judge SS Prasad, who delivered the judgment, also found another former chief minister Jagannath Mishra guility in the case. The case pertains to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.62 crore from the Chaibasa treasury in the 1990s. Out of the 56 accused in the case, as many as six were acquitted.
Lalu was first convicted In 2013 in the first fodder scam case involving withdrawal of Rs 37.7 crore from the Chaibasa treasury for buying fodder. On January 6 this year, Lalu was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail and fined Rs 10 lakh by a another CBI judge in a fodder scam case relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury 21 years ago. This is the third case in which Lalu has been convicted.
