Patna: The Patna High Court on Wednesday allowed an
JD(U) MLA, undergoing a life imprisonment, to attend the

of Medical Sciences here, where he was admitted, while he was
taking an evening stroll in the hospital campus on June 13,
Prasad, who was facing a CBI inquiry in a scam in the
admission of students into engineering colleges, was gunned
down along with his body guard and an associate.
