Ranchi: A special CBI court in Ranchi will on Friday deliver the verdict in the fourth case related to multi-million rupees fodder scam involving former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav and several others.

The special CBI court had on Thursday deferred the judgement in the case.

The court took on record Lalu’s petition seeking issuing of summons to the then Accountant General as accused and listed it for the verdict on Friday.

"We filed a petition on Monday asking the Attorney General office officials to be made accused in the case too. Both parties argued in the Court. The order has been reserved and it will be pronounced tomorrow. After that the date of judgement will be fixed," Lalu Yadav's lawyer Prabhat Kumar said.

Former Bihar Chief Minister and several others are accused in the fodder case - relating to fraudulent withdrawals of Rs 3.13 crore from December 1995 to January 1996 from the Dumka Treasury. 

Besides Lalu, another former CM Jagannath Mishra and 30 others are accused in this case.

Lalu was convicted in the first fodder scam case in 2013 and awarded five years in jail.

He was then convicted in the second case on December 23, 2017, and awarded three-and-half years' imprisonment on January 6. 

The multi-million-rupee fodder scam surfaced in the 1990s when Lalu Yadav was Chief Minister of undivided Bihar.
