Ranchi: Former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu
Prasad, who was sentenced to five years rigorous imprisonment and a fine
of Rs five lakh in a 17-year-old fodder scam case, today claimed that he
was falsely implicated.

"Sir, I am innocent. I have been falsely framed in the case," a subdued
Prasad pleaded during a video conference from the Birsa Munda Central Jail
to Special CBI Judge Pravas Kumar Singh, who pronounced the quantum of
sentence for 37 of the 45 convicts.

The video conferencing was held on security grounds, a court official

Prasad had on September 30 and during his previous appearances claimed
that there was a political conspiracy against him.

JDU MP Jagdish Sharma also pleaded innocence.

With the conclusion of 45 of 53 AHD cases, Prasad still has four more
cases against him in the Rs 950 crore scam, which was unearthed during his
regime in the 1990s.

Yadav has also been accused in RC 38A/96, RC 47A/96, RC 64 A/96 and in
another RC case.
