The court also asked the counsels of former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra and RJD leader RK Rana, both convicted in the RC 20 A/96 case, to record their statement as accused in the same case on February 5 and 1 respectively.
The special CBI court had ended 46 out of 53 fodder cases with convictions in the Rs 950 crore AHD scam.
