Ranchi: Jharkhand High Court yesterday reserved its judgment on a petition seeking to make former Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and ex-JD(U) spokesman Shivanand Tiwari accused in the Rs 950 crore fodder scam.  

The bench of Justice R R Prasad reserved the verdict after hearing petitioner Mithilesh Prasad's contention that Kumar and Tiwari should also be made accused in the fodder scam, submitting to the court a list of witnesses and accused who had given statements against the two political leaders.  

The court also heard the arguments of the CBI in this regard.

The court had earlier asked the petitioner to place before it on what points he sought CBI investigation against Kumar and Tiwari.

Former Bihar Chief Ministers chief Lalu Prasad and Jagannath Mishra were convicted in a fodder scam on September 30, 2013.
