New Delhi:  RJD supremo Lalu Prasad today approached Supreme Court and sought bail in the fodder scam case in which he has been convicted and sentenced to five year's imprisonment.


The matter is likely to come up for hearing Friday as senior counsel P.H. Parekh mentioned it before the court of Chief Justice P. Sathasivam, Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai and Justice Ranjan Gogoi.

Lalu Prasad has challenged the Jharkhand High Court's Oct 31 interim order rejecting his plea for bail during the pendency of his appeal against the trial court order sentencing him to undergo an imprisonment of five years and a two fines totaling to an amount of Rs.25 lakh.

Faulting the high court order, Lalu Prasad in his petition has said that fellow accused R.K. Rana who too was convicted for the same offence as he was and awarded five years rigorous imprisonment was granted bail six days before his bail plea was rejected.
