Major relief for Lalu Yadav in fooder scam case

New Delhi: Supreme Court on Tuesday restrained a Jharkhand court from delivering any judgement in the fodder case involving RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.

Lalu Prasad claimed there could be bias against him and had sought the transfer of the case. The Apex Court order came upon senior counsel Ram Jethmalani telling the court that the trial court has followed an unusual procedure wherein the arguments were in progress, it put up a notice informing the party to file the written argument by July 1, so that the judgment could be pronounced on July 15.

The notice is returnable in two weeks. The multi-million-rupee fodder scam in Bihar surfaced in 1996. Around 54 of the 61 cases were transferred to Jharkhand when it was carved from Bihar in November 2000. Different CBI special courts have passed judgments in more than 43 cases.
