Varta Mitra News

The Jharkhand High Court today refused to extend the provisional bail of fodder scam convict and former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad and asked him to surrender by August 30 before the CBI court.

Moving the court for a third extension of provisional bail for continuing treatment at a super-specialty hospital in Mumbai, Prasad, who had undergone surgery for anal fistula, said that his health condition has not improved as the infection continues.

Hearing the prayer for extension of provisional bail for three months on grounds that the RJD leader needed to undergo treatment, Justice Apresh Kumar Singh asked Prasad to surrender by August 30 before the CBI court and directed the state government to provide medical care whenever needed.

He was granted provisional bail for six weeks by the high court on May 11 on health grounds. The court had subsequently twice extended the bail period, which finally ended on August 20.
