Judgement in third fodder scam case against Lalu Prasad on Janunary 24

Lalu Prasad Yadav

Pandey's statement came after a local vernacular newspaper published an article claiming that two persons implicated themselves in a false case and were serving Lalu at Birsa Munda Central Jail, where the RJD chief is lodged. Tejashwi Yadav, Lalu's son, said the family had tried to communicate the news of Gangotri's death to the minister through the prison authorities in Ranchi.

The two had been named as Madan Yadav, an entrepreneur who owns two cowsheds, a big house and a high-end SUV, and Laxman Singh, residents of Ranchi who had planned of creating a fake snatching scene to get into the jail.

Reacting to the verdict, the BJP and its ally Janata Dal-United said no one was above the law while the RJD claimed its leader fell prey to a "conspiracy" by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the saffron party. "Laluji never asked anyone to go to jail", the RJD spokesperson was quoted as saying by TOI.

Harvey Weinstein Slapped at Resort in Scottsdale
Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment by dozens of women, and at least 13 of them claim Weinstein raped them. We see Weinstein stumble a bit, remove the skull cap he's wearing and look at the man in confusion.

The duo - identified as Lakshman Mahto (cook) and Madan Yadav (attendant) - are said to have landed behind the bars to "serve" Lalu in prison.

Lalu has been jailed for three-and-a-half years in a case linked to fodder scam involving the embezzlement of more than Rs 89 lakh in government funds between 1991 and 1994.

The superintendent of Birsa Munda Central Jail, could not be reached immediately for comment.

The expansion will introduce a new story, full of new locales and characters, as well as raise the level cap from 40 to 45. The big draw is that The Hidden Ones will take place in an all-new region of Egypt, giving the player more to explore.

The RJD jumped to its leader's defence, insisting the presence of the two was "co-incidental".

Manoj Kumar, a tea-seller who knows Madan, said, "Madan is well connected with sound financial background". The usual practice is that lawyers concerned ask for documentary evidence - police station diary and the FIR - before taking a decision in such matters.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and eight others are expected to be produced before a special CBI court on Wednesday in relation to another fodder scam case after production warrant was issued against them on January 3. "However, in this case none of these norms was followed".
