Ranchi: A CBI court that convicted former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav in the fifth fodder scam case against him will pronounce the quantum of his punishment on Monday.
The verdict will be pronounced virtually on Monday afternoon.
Lalu Prasad was convicted in the case last Tuesday, following which he was sent to Hotwar jail. He was shifted to the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) after his health deteriorated. He will be attending the hearing from the hospital.
Prior to this case, the Rashtriya Janata Dal chief has been convicted in all four fodder scam-related cases, but has been out on bail.
All these cases relate to the misappropriation of government funds allocated for cattle fodder between 1991 and 1996, when Lalu Prasad was the Bihar CM.
