The duo was released from the jail on Wednesday evening after it became known that they had conspired to get an FIR lodged against them so that they could stay in the jail and be at their master's beck and call.

According to The Indian Express, Madan Yadav and Laxman Mahto, who have served as Lalu's cooks in the past, were sent to jail in an apparent false case. They had been given the tool as they were not criminals, said the court.

Lalu's son and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said in Patna a bail plea will also be moved in the high court.

"Even as an investigation was initiated into complaint, the accused reached the court and surrendered before the Chief Judicial Magistrate".

The same report also noted that the police began investigating the case only after realising that both men were close to Lalu and are part of his inner circle.

The special CBI Court on Saturday had pronounced 3.5 years' jail for the RJD chief and also slapped a fine of Rs 10 lakh in a fodder scam case RC64A/96, related to fraudulent withdrawal from Deoghar treasury during 1991 to 1994. However, the latest revelations have drawn criticism from rival JD (U).

"This shows that Lalu Prasad's commitment to social justice is a sham and he cares only for himself and his family members", Kumar, a JD-U member of legislative council, said.

Ranchi: RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav was once again presented before CBI judge Shiv Pal Singh on Wednesday at Ranchi Court where he cried harsh attitude of jail authorities towards him. During the proceedings of the case in Ranchi on January 4, the CBI judge had also stated: "Laluji, we are getting a lot of references and calls for you" without naming the people who had called him up.

This is the eighth time Lalu Prasad Yadav has gone to jail, but it is the first time authorities are throwing rulebook on him. "It's unfortunate that both are being called as "sevadaar", said Shakti Singh Yadav, RJD spokesperson and MLA.
