SC regects Laloo Yadav’s bail Plea
New Delhi, Apr.10(HS): The Supreme Court (SC) rejected the bail plea by RJD chief Lalu Prasad, observing the former Bihar chief minister had been sentenced to more than 25 years in jail in fodder scam cases. "We don''t think we will release you on bail. The Special Leave Petition is dismissed," said a bench led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi. The bench rejected Prasad''s arguments that he had been in jail for 24 months, saying in comparison to the sentence awarded to him, 24 months was nothing. "You are convicted in four cases... you are roughly sentenced to 25 years in jail. The Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday had also said, Lalu Yadav must not be allowed any reprieve to pursue his political activities. In an affidavit to the Supreme Court, the CBI said the Bihar politician''s "nefarious act" as chief minister of a state shook the conscience of the entire nation, and he was "misleading the court by asking for bail on medical grounds" as he wanted to play a part in the Lok Sabha elections. The former Bihar chief minister "is conducting political activities from a special ward of a hospital."These are the issues whether your sentences will run concurrently or consecutively, the High Court will decide," supreme court said in its order.
