"Contempt of Court" notices were also issued against leader of the Opposition in Bihar Assembly Tejaswi Yadav, party's vice-president Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari along with the Congress Spokesperson Manish Tiwari for making comments against the December 23 verdict of the fodder scam cases by the court.

Lalu, who is also facing trial in three more fodder scam cases, was taken to court from Birsa Munda Central Jail around 12.30pm.

The arguments in the Chaibasa case got completed in the court of special CBI judge S.S Prasad after Lalu Prasad was produced in the case today. Yadav is now undergoing 3.5 years imprisonment for corruption in a fodder scam case.

The jail was opened in 2013 for naxals, convicts or undertrials, who are seen open to the idea of giving up weapons and returning to the mainstream. The 69-year-old leader's quick reply was: "There will be genocide if the workers are stopped in open jail". To this, the judge said visitors will only be allowed following the jail manual. Meanwhile, in Patna, CRPF withdrew 14 of the total 24 jawans deployed at his residence as Yadav's VIP security has been downgraded from Z-plus to Z. "Accordingly, there will be no celebrations for Makar Sankranti at 10, Circular Road this time", said, president of the women cell of RJD. "I will order it if you say", the judge replied. To that, the judge said: "We will have dahi-chura here itself+".

Lalu's response was witty. On Wednesday, the ex-CM pleaded before Singh to deliver his judgment in the Dumka treasury case soon. "If I eat dahi-chura with you, I might end up in a problem like Syed Shahabuddin of Siwan", he said, as the court room burst into laughter. "No sir, this is a thing of the Yadavs".

He tried to convince Singh to give him a shorter sentence this time.
