Ranchi: BJP leader Saryu Roy, one of the petitioners that led to the CBI probe into the Rs 950 crore AHD scam, on Thursday called on Lalu Prasad Yadav at the Birsa Munda Central Jail where the RJD supremo is serving a five-year prison sentence in a fodder case.

"I met him as we have known to each other since our college and university days in Patna. We have not discussed anything about politics," Roy said after meeting the former Bihar Chief Minister.

"I did not think of that. I have been pursuing against corruption and scams, and I met him because we know each other," Roy said when asked how he felt seeing Yadav in jail after being one of the petitioners that led to the CBI probe into the scam and subsequently his conviction.

"I will continue to pursue against corruption in future too," Roy said.

Yadav and 44 others were convicted by a special CBI court on September 30 in the RC20A/96 case pertaining to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.7 crore from Chaibasa Treasury and were sentenced to varying prison terms.

Roy, former Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Modi and Rajiv Ranjan had filed the petition in the Patna High Court demanding a CBI probe in to the Animal Husbandry Department scam that was unearthed when Yadav was at the helm of affairs in Bihar.
