Former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad, who was lodged in Birsa Central Jail in Ranchi after being convicted in two fodder scam cases, was on Saturday admitted to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) Hospital following health concerns. RIMS officials said Lalu had been admitted to the cardiology wing and was being kept under observation. His condition is stable, they said.

Earlier in the day, the judgment in the fourth fodder scam case, listed for afternoon, got deferred again as the presiding special CBI judge, Shivpal Singh, had to leave for two-day training. The judgment is likely to be pronounced on Monday. RIMS Medical Superintendent S K Chowdhary said: “He (Lalu) was brought here early evening. We admitted him in the cardiology wing. Doctors from cardiology, as well as surgery and other wings, are examining him.

He is under observation. His health is absolutely stable.”
