RJD supremo and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, who was found guilty in multi-million Fodder scam case, on Thursday surrendered before a CBI court in Ranchi. Yadav was out on a provisional bail, which has expired on Thursday, August 30, 2018. Last week, the Jharkhand High Court rejected Lalu's plea to extend the bail and therefore directed the RJD chief to surrender before the CBI court by August 30.

Later in the day, the RJD chief was shifted to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) from Birsa Munda Central Jail and will undergo medical treatment.

Talking about the latest development Prabhat Kumar, Yadav's Lawyer said, "Doctors of Asian Heart Institute (Mumbai) will do a checkup of Lalu Prasad Yadav and then inform Court about his condition".

Ahead of his surrender in the court, Jharkhand Vikas Morcha chief Babu Lal Marandi paid a visit to Yadav in Ranchi.

In May, Yadav, who was awarded 14 years of imprisonment in the Dumka Treasury case, had been released on a three-day parole to attend his son Tej Pratap Yadav's wedding in Patna.

Later in the month, Yadav was granted six weeks' provisional bail owing to his ill health. He was admitted to the RIMS hospital in Ranchi and at the Delhi AIIMS, for treatment of various ailments.

Post that, the former Bihar chief minister was shifted to a Mumbai hospital but discharged on August 25 after doctors declared him fit.
