Lalu Prasad Yadav falls ill in jail, admitted to RIMS hospital

His son and former Bihar minister Tej Pratap Yadav, along with other senior RJD leaders, visited him at the hospital amid tight security, the Hindustan Times reported.

He has been in Birsa Munda jail at Ranchi since December 23 previous year, after being convicted in the second case pertaining to illegal withdrawal of money from Deogarh treasury.

RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has been admitted to RIMS Hospital in Ranchi.

Lalu's elder son Tej Pratap, who flew from Patna, said: "I heard that my father was being taken to RIMS by the jail authorities so I made a decision to accompany him and took the next flight for Ranchi".

Also, Lalu, the prime accused and at whose behest the court made former A-G Bihar P K Mukhopadhyay as an accused in the case yesterday, was admitted to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) after he made pile related complaints to the jail authorities. Lalu was convicted in three fodder cases while Jagannath Mishra was convicted in two fodder cases.

Other than RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and Jagannath Mishra, there are 29 accused, including former IAS officers and AHD officials, in the Dumka Treasury case.

Meanwhile, the special CBI court of Shivpal Singh on Saturday again deferred verdict in the fodder scam case RC 38A/96.

On January 24, this year a special CBI court sentenced Lalu and Mishra to five years in jail in a fodder scam case related to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.62 crore from Chaibasad treasury. In two earlier cases, he was sentenced to five years, and three-and-a-half years in prison.

A fifth case in relation with the alleged fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 139 crore from the Doranda treasury in Ranchi is still pending.

The multi-million-rupee fodder scam surfaced in the 1990s when Lalu Yadav was Chief Minister of undivided Bihar.

Currently, Lalu is facing a jail term in the Fodder scam.
