Ranchi, July 12 (TIWN) The Jharkhand High Court on Friday gave bail to RJD chief Lalu Prasad in a fodder scam case related to fraudulent withdrawal of funds from the Deoghar treasury. However, he will remain in jail in two other cases related to the scam.

The case is related to fraudulent withdrawal of ₹89,27,000 from the Deoghar treasury.  The court asked Prasad to submit his passport, but it was informed that his passport had expired.  “We requested the court to grant bail to him as he has already served nearly half of the jail term in the case and also on the ground of his old age and deteriorating health…”, his counsel Prabhat Kumar told journalists in Ranchi.    Earlier, on December 23, 2017 Prasad was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail in the case.
