Fodder Scam: CBI Court to sentence Lalu Prasad Yadav today

As per the reports, the special CBI court has deferred the sentencing of former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Yadav along with 15 others in Fodder Scam case.

However, Lalu's son and his designated "heir apparent", Tejashwi Yadav, and three others had contempt notices issued against them by the CBI court on Wednesday.

The court was expected to pronounce the quantum of the sentence today, a day after it reopened after winter break, but deferred the sentencing to Thursday.

"Lalu Prasad Yadav is a habitual criminal who is used to the prison life". Immediately after being convicted by a special CBI court in Ranchi last month, Lalu Yadav had said that he would challenge the verdict in the high court and accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of playing dirty politics. The special court had completed the hearing in the fodder scam case on December 13.
