Ranchi: In a major setback for jailed RJD Supremo and former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav the Jharkhand High Court on Friday deferred the hearing on his bail plea till November 27.

    The court of justice Apresh Singh deferred the hearing and fixed November 27 as the next date after lawyers of CBI sought more time from the court to file their reply.

    The decision of the court has turned out to be major setback for Mr Yadav and his supporters as now he would be forced to celebrate Diwali and Chhath inside.

     At present he is staying at the bunglow of RIMS Director and under going treatment for various ailments. The lawyer of Mr Yadav in his bail plea had said that since his client had completed half the tenure awarded to him in Dumka Treasury case of the Fodder Scam therefore he was eligible for bail.

   A special CBI court had awarded 14 years of imprisonment to Mr Yadav in Dumka Treasury case of the Fodder scam. Lalu Yadav has been lodged in jail since December 23, 2017 he was held  guilty in Deoghar Treasury Case.

 Lalu Yadav has so far got bails in two cases of Fodder Scam related to Chaibasa Treasury and one related to Deoghar Treasury had the HC granted him bail in Dumka Treasury case it would have enabled the RJD supremo to walk out of the jail.
