Lalu Prasad’s Petition to Quash Fodder Case Rejected

A special CBI court today rejected a petition by RJD chief Lalu Prasad requesting not to be tried in the RC 68A/96 fodder scam case as he had already been convicted in RC 20A/96 case earlier and the two were similar.

The court of CBI judge A K Mishra rejected the petition filed by Prasad under section 300 of the Code of Criminal Procedure Act which states that a person once convicted or acquitted not to be tried for the same offence again, his advocate Prabhat Kumar said here.

RC 68A/96 pertains to alleged fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 36 crore from Chaibasa Treasury in 1993/94 fiscal when Prasad was the chief minister of Bihar.

On July 1, the court of A K Rai had dismissed a similar petition in connection with the RC 64 A/96 case pertaining to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 96 lakh from Deogarh Treasury in the 1990s.

Prasad had been convicted on September 30 last year and sentenced to five years imprisonment on October 3 in the RC 20A/96 fodder case pertaining to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.7 crore from Chaibasa Treasury in 1994-95.
