Patna: Lalu Prasad Yadav was sentenced to five years in jail and was imposed a fine of ₹ 60 lakh in a fifth case connected to the fodder scam.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court convicted the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader in the case last week. The case involves the illegal withdrawal of ₹ 139.5 crore from the Doranda treasury, as part of the fodder scam that took place in the 1990s, when Lalu Yadav was Chief Minister of Bihar, reported NDTV.

The former Bihar chief minister was found guilty along with 39 others.

“I fight those who create divides. They can’t defeat us so they try to trap us in conspiracies. I have neither been afraid, nor bent before anyone. I will keep fighting. The coward will never understand the struggles of a fighter,” Lalu Yadav tweeted in Hindi.

Lalu Yadav is currently out on bail and is unwell. He joined the court hearing via video conferencing.
