There is fresh trouble for brewing for RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in the fodder scam. The Supreme Court on 17 August issued a notice to Yadavon CBI's plea against dropping of certain charges in of the FIRS by Jharkhand High Court.

A special CBI court in September 2014 had rejected a petition filed by RJD chief Lalu Prasad pleading to quash the RC 38A/96 fodder scam case as he had already been convicted in RC20A/96, the third such petition being dismissed by the same court, reports Zee News.

On September 30 in 2013, a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Jharkhand had convicted and sentenced Prasad to a five-year imprisonment in one of the case fodder cases related to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.7 crore from the Chaibasa Treasury during the 1994-95 fiscal. However, in less than three months of serving his prison term, Prasad was granted bail by the Supreme Court.
