Ranchi (Jharkhand) [India], Jan 3 (ANI): The Ranchi Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court will pronounce the quantum of sentence against Rashtriya Janata Dal(RJD) chief Lalu Prasad and others in connection with fodder scam tomorrow.

The court deferred the matter in wake of demise of advocate Vindeshwari parsad.

The Court also found Lalu's son Tejasvi yadav and other party leaders Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and Manoj Jha guilty of contempt of court.

On December 23, the RJD chief along with 14 others was found guilty by the court while seven accused including former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra were acquitted.

Lalu has been convicted in one of the cases of the fodder scam, wherein Rs 900 crore from the Bihar exchequer was siphoned off under the pretext of purchasing fodder for livestock, during '80s and '90s. (ANI)
