Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo and former Bihar CM Lalu Prasad Yadav suffered minor injuries during a religious event in Patna on Friday.

The politician suffered injuries after the dais he was sitting on collapsed due to overcrowding.

Prasad, along with his sons -- Deputy CM of Bihar Tejaswi Yadav and Health Minister Tej Pratap -- and daughter Misa Bharti, who is a Rajya Sabha MP, had gone to attend a yagna at Digha here when the dais they were sitting on caved in. 

Prasad was taken to Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences and Hospital. Doctors said that they conducted an X-ray to assess his injury. 

He was later discharged from the hospital. Lalu told reporters that he had suffered a back injury.

This was not the first time that Lalu has been injured in such incidents.

Two years ago, during an election rally in Motihari, Lalu was hurt after a ceiling fan fell onto the stage where he was sitting. Yadav had suffered minor injuries in his hand.
