RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav, convicted in fodder scam and presently lodged in the Birsa Munda Central Jail in Ranchi, will reportedly remain under constant watch of camera when he attends the  wedding of his eldest son Tej Pratap. 

Tej Pratap Yadav, a sitting MLA and former state minister, will tie the knot with Aishwarya Rai, daughter of RJD legislator Chandrika Rai, on May 12 in Patna.

Quoting its sources in the Birsa Munda Central Jail, news agency IANS reported that Lalu's movements would be captured by video cameras.

Not only that, Lalu will not meet and speak to party leaders, media persons and not engage in any political activity.

Lalu left for Ranchi airport from the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) on Thursday, where he is admitted for treatment, and was scheduled to leave for Patna by a private carrier at 5.50 p.m, the sources said.

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief is accompanied by a team of doctors and policemen.

Lalu has been undergoing treatment at RIMS after he was brought here from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, on May 1.

His provisional bail plea hearing is due to be taken up at the Jharkhand High Court on May 11.

Lalu Prasad was admitted to RIMS on March 17 following complaints of uneasiness when he was lodged in the Birsa Munda Central Jail, where he is serving a jail term since December 23, 2017 in connection with the fodder scam.

He has been convicted in four fodder scam cases since 2013 -- the latest being the Dumka treasury case in which a special CBI court sentenced him to 14 years in jail.
