The RJD chief, who was lodged in Ranchi's Birsa Munda Central Jail, was rushed to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) for treatment after he complained of pain in his chest, according to sources.
Earlier in the day, a special CBI court in Ranchi deferred its judgment in the fourth fodder scam case involving Lalu Prasad Yadav.
The possible reason behind the deferral was Lalu's poor health due to which he was brought to Ranchi's RIMS Hospital.
The pronouncement of the verdict has been scheduled on March 19. Currently, he is facing a jail term in the case.
A special CBI court in Ranchi sentenced the RJD chief and seven others, namely Phool Chand, Mahesh Prasad, Bake Julious, Sunil Kumar, Sushil Kumar, Sudhir Kumar and Raja Ram, to 3.5 years imprisonment and Rs 5 lakh fine each in the second fodder scam case.
