Charges against Lalu in yet another fodder scam case

May 17, 2005 18:19 IST

A special Central Bureau of Investigation court on Tuesday framed charges against Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav in yet another fodder scam case.

This case pertains to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 3.13 crore from Dumka treasury between December 1995 and January 1996.

This is the second fodder scam case in little over a fortnight in which charges have been framed against Lalu.

The charges were read out in the court of CBI Special Judge Sanjay Prasad.

On April 25, a special CBI court had framed charges against Lalu, Mishra and 68 others in a case relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37 crore in 1996 from Chaibasa treasury, now in Jharkhand.

The CBI has filed charge sheets in 60 fodder scam cases, out of which 53 are being tried in the courts at Ranchi and seven in Patna.

The Rs 950 crore fodder scam was unearthed in Bihar in 1996 when Lalu was the chief minister. He had resigned from the post in 1997 after a court issued an arrest warrant against him in one of the cases.
