Rashtriya Janata Dal president Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday appeared before a special CBI court here in connection with a case relating to the fodder scam.

Special CBI judge Prajesh Kumar, who had last week ordered the former Bihar chief minister to appear in person, fixed November 30 as the next date of hearing.

“On the next date, the court will examine the witnesses who number about 200. On that date, Lalu ji has not been asked to appear. However, he will appear whenever the court asks him to do so,” Prasad’s counsel Sudhir Sinha told reporters.

Prasad was summoned here in connection with alleged fraudulent withdrawal of about Rs 1 crore from the treasury in Banka district.
