The Supreme Court on Friday asked the CBI to file a response on the bail plea of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in connection with multi-crore fodder scam.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to respond in two weeks on Yadav's plea challenging the January 10 verdict of the Jharkhand High Court rejecting bail to him in these cases.

Yadav is lodged in the Birsa Munda Central Jail in Ranchi, Jharkhand.

The over Rs 900 crore fodder scam relates to fraudulent withdrawal of money from treasuries in the Animal Husbandry department in early 1990s when Bihar and Jharkhand were one state and the RJD was in power with Yadav the chief minister.
