The Jharkhand government is contemplating granting parole to former Bihar Chief Minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in view of the coronavirus crisis.

Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren on Monday said the government was concerned about Yadav's health.

He was quoted by ANI as saying, "We've informed the Advocate General that we are concerned for his (Yadav's) health. So state government should be informed with a legal opinion."

"The parole issue of Lalu Prasad was discussed during cabinet meeting. We have sought suggestion from the Advocate General. Any decision will be taken based on the legal formalities," state Parliamentary Affairs Minister Alamgir Alam told reporters after the cabinet meeting on Monday, IANS reported.

Yadav is admitted to the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in Ranchi for treatment.

At least eight coronavirus positive patients are admitted at the RIMS and one patient died on Sunday.

Convicted in cases related to the multi-million fodder scam and undergoing imprisonment in the Birsa Munda Central Jail, Yadav was shifted to the RIMS for treatment in August 2018.
