J'khand HC seeks medical reports of Lalu Prasad from AIIMS-Delhi
Ranchi: The Jharkhand High Court on Friday sought the medical reports of jailed RJD chief Lalu Prasad from AIIMS-Delhi, where he is undergoing treatment, while hearing his interim bail plea on medical grounds in fodder scam cases.
Justice Apresh Kumar Singh fixed May 4 as the next date of hearing Prasad's bail petition.
"The high court sought the AIIMS report and asked the CBI to file a counter affidavit," Prasad's lawyer Prabhat Kumar said.
On February 23, the court rejected Prasad's bail plea
in the RC 64A/96 case pertaining to the illegal withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from Deoghar treasury between 1990 and 1994.
Kumar said they had moved an interim bail plea also for 68A/96 (Chaibasa treasury case) and RC/38A96 (Dumka treasury case), but the court heard only 64A/96 and 68A/96.
