Ranchi- RJD supremo Lalu Prasad was on Saturday sentenced to three and a half years jail in a fodder scam case. Lalu Prasad is lodged at the Birsa Munda Central Jail in Ranchi while the sentence was announced via video-conference. He was asked to pay a fine of five lakhs. "We will go to the High Court after studying the sentence and apply for a bail", said Tejashwi Yadav, RJD leader and son of Lalu Prasad.

Furthermore, in the wake of court's ruling and pronouncement of sentence against Lalu Prasad Yadav senior members of the RJD are expected to meet today to discuss the party's strategy and the "emerging political situation".

On Friday, Lalu Prasad sought a minimum punishment citing health issues.

Lalu Yadav faces trial in three more cases relating to the fodder scam, locally called the "chara ghotala".

Judging from the teaser trailer's sound and visuals, this record appears to have a bit of a roosty, Americana vibe to it. Timberlake says this album, titled " Man of the Woods ", was inspired by his wife, son, and family.

Last month the anti-corruption court found Yadav guilty of fraudulently withdrawing almost $140,000 from the state treasury in a larger fraud dubbed the "fodder scam", which was worth about 10 billion rupees ($157 million). "I am sure our Chief Laluji will attend RJD's crucial meeting tomorrow" says Bihar party chief Ramchandra Purve. Lalu Prasad Yadav and 15 others were convicted in a fodder scam case 21 years after it had surfaced while acquitting six others including another former chief minister Jagannath Mishra.

Three former IAS officers - Beck Julius, Phoolchand Singh and Mahesh Prasad - were given a prison term of three and-a-half years each.

In 1996, the Patna High Court had ordered an inquiry into the fodder scam cases and a charge sheet in the Deogarh Treasury case was filed against 38 people on October 27, 1997. They were pronounced guilty for engaging in fraudulent transactions worth Rs 89 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury between 1991 and 1994.
