Colleagues of RJD Supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav arrested for serving him in jail


NEW DELHI: The former chief minister of Bihar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo, Lalu Prasad Yadav had been punished for the fodder scam case by CBI Court as three and half years imprisonment in jail.

Apart from Prasad, his two colleagues named Madan Yadav and Laxman Singh also have been arrested and sent to Ranchi’s Birsa Munda Jail for serving him in jail after they surrendered in a false case of corruption, police said on Tuesday.

Madan Yadav had two cowsheds, a big house, and a high-end SUV, while Laxman Singh is residents of Ranchi, had planned of creating a fake snatching scene to get into the jail.

The Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD), after many contemplations, admitted that both Madan and Laxman were their party workers. RJD spokesperson, Shakti Singh Yadav, said, “Police should probe how the two got jailed. Laluji never asked anyone to go to jail.”

The FIR was lodged on December 23 by Sumit Yadav, Ranchi resident, against Madan, who, he alleged, snatched Rs 10,000 from him.
