RANCHI:

The Jharkhand high court

on Friday granted bail to former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad in a

fodder scam case

related to

Chaibasa

treasury.
The case involves fraudulent withdrawals amounting to Rs 33.67 crore from the Chaibasa treasury in undivided Bihar, when Lalu Prasad was the chief minister.
The RJD chief, however, will have to remain in jail as he is serving time in another case related to Dumka treasury.
The high court has asked Prasad to submit two personal bonds of Rs 50,000 each, and deposit penalty of Rs 2 lakh which was awarded by a special

CBI

court to secure his bail.
It also sought his medical report and the details of all those he has met during the course of his treatment at

Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences

in Ranchi.
Earlier, he was granted bail in Deoghar treasury case.
