A special CBI court in Ranchi will pronounce the verdict in the Dumka treasury case, the fourth in the Fodder Scam involving former Bihar chief minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, on Monday at 2 pm.

There are six FIRs against Lalu Prasad Yadav out of which judgement has been pronounced in three cases.

Along with Lalu, former Bihar CM Jagannath Misra and several others are also accused in the case.

"The judge is attending a two-day training programme of Jharkhand Judicial Academy for judicial officials and public prosecutors at Dhurwa starting today (Saturday)".

He was admitted to the cardiology department of Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) here where the doctors conducted the ECG and other tests.

On Friday, the special CBI court had accepted Lalu's petition demanding the trial three senior officials posted in the Bihar accountant-general's office in the 1990s. He is now serving a prison term of 3.5 years following his conviction in the Deoghar treasury case on December 23 last year. Mishra was earlier acquitted in the second fodder scam case on December 23 a year ago along with five others.
