A special court on Wednesday summoned RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra and others to appear before it on September six in connection with the multi-crore rupees fodder scam case.

Designated CBI Judge Vimal Kumar Jain asked Prasad and others to ensure their personal appearance in connection with the case related to fraudulent withdrawal of several lakhs of rupees from Bhagalpur treasury when the RJD chief was the Chief Minister between 1990 and 1997.

Jain also summoned Mishra, JD(U) MP Jagdish Sharma, also former Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee of Bihar Assembly, former RJD MP R K Rana, former state Minister Vidya Sagar Nishad, besides some retired IAS officials allegedly involved in the case. The court ordered their personal appearance for hearing the petitions filed by them seeking to be exonerated from the charges levelled against them in the chargesheet, which has already been submitted by the Central Bureau of Investigation.
