There are instructions. My health is not good),” Lalu Prasad told reporters while on his way to his wife Rabri Devi’s residence at 10, Circular road.

The RJD leader, who has been lodged in Birsa Munda Central Jail since December, was granted six weeks provisional bail in May. The bail was further extended till August 14, after which the court asked him to surrender on or before August 30.
