Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI)

30 September 2013

A CBI court today found Rashtriya Janta Dal chief and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav guilty in the “food for fodder” scam, reported the Business Standard.

Yadav has been booked for criminal conspiracy, corruption and cheating.

The case was lodged by the Bihar government in 1996 against Yadav for alleged fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.7 crore from the Chalibasa treasury in the 1990s. A month after lodging the FIR the case was transferred to the CBI court. After a year of investigation the CBI filed a chargesheet and in 2000 the special CBI court commenced trial against Yadav.

44 others including several administrative officials were also found guilty by the court today. [Timeline of the case]

Yadav could be the first big shot politico who will be caught by the Supreme Court Lily Thomas judgment of July, which disqualifies convicts from standing for political office.
