The Jharkhand High Court on Friday granted bail to RJD patriarch Lalu Prasad Yadav in the Rs 139.35 crore Doranda fodder scam.
“He will be released soon. He will have to deposit Rs 1 lakh surety amount and Rs 10 lakh as fine,” his lawyer said.
The 73-year-old leader was convicted by a CBI court in Ranchi in the fifth fodder scam case pertaining to the illegal withdrawal of Rs 139.5 crore from the Doranda treasury.
The Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ranchi had sentenced him to five years imprisonment in the case. The court had also slammed a fine of Rs 60 lakh on him after pronouncing him guilty.
