Ranchi: A special CBI court today found nine
fodder scam accused, including an ex-regional director, guilty
of withdrawing Rs 50.37 lakh fraudulently from Hazaribagh
Treasury in the 1990s.

Special CBI Judge Bireshwar Jha Prabir sentenced a
supplier, Anil Kumar, to two-and-a-half years of rigorous
imprisonment and fined him Rs 40,000.

The court will pronounce the quantum of punishment
against the other eight convicts tomorrow.

A former regional director of the Animal Husbandry
Department, K N Singh and two other ex-officials of the AHD, B
B Prasad and K N Ram were among the nine convicted in the RC
29A/96 case.

This was the 35th of the 53 fodder scam cases to have
been ended in conviction since the Rs 950 crore scam was
unearthed in the 1990s in undivided Bihar.
