RANCHI: The fate of former Bihar chief ministers Lalu Prasad Yadav and Jagannath Mishra and 20 others will be decided on Saturday by a special CBI court here in the fodder scam case pertaining to fraudulent withdrawal of more than Rs 89 lakh from Deoghar Treasury between 1991 and 1994.
Lalu, accompanied by younger son Tejaswi Yadav, arrived here to present himself before the special CBI Judge Shiv Pal Singh.
On Friday, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo had said that he respected the judiciary and expressed hope that he would also get a clean chit in the fodder scam case.
The fodder scam case relates to the alleged fraudulent withdrawal of Rs. 95 lakh from the Deoghar treasury.
Overall, more than Rs.900 crore was reportedly siphoned off from the Chaibasa treasury over two decades.
The RJD chief has already been convicted and sentenced to five years of imprisonment in one of the five fodder scam cases.
