RANCHI: Punishments for Lalu Prasad continue to pour in, with a special CBI court sentencing the former Bihar CM and RJD boss to a total of 14 years for two more convictions concerning his involvement in the fodder scam.

Special CBI judge Shiv Pal Singh, who had held Lalu guilty of two separate offenses — one under the Indian Penal Code and the other under the Prevention of Corruption Act — handed him separate sentences of seven years each. Singh said that the two terms will be served consecutively: a ruling that means that the one-time strongman of Bihar, who is already serving sentences for three prior fodder scam-related convictions, will be behind bars for another 14 years. This is the maximum sentence awarded to any politician in the fodder scam.
