A police official said, "We weren't aware that the two surrendered before the court and were sent to jail". The Indian Express quoted Ranchi's DSP (City) Raj Kumar Mehta as saying. They also noted that "serving" their leader would have been the only reason for picking up such a case.

While ally-turned-foe JD (U) accused Lalu of showing a "feudal" mindset and allegedly "getting services of two supporters inside the prison", a top RJD leader dismissed it as "coincidence", and accused the JD (U) and its ally BJP of making an issue out of everything involving Lalu.

In the case, which pertains to fraudulent withdrawals worth Rs 37 crore by the Bihar animal husbandry department from Chaibasa district treasury (now in Jharkhand) in the erstwhile united Bihar, Lalu is an accused along with 29 others.

It may be mentioned that Lalu Prasad was convicted and sentenced to three and half years jail term in connection with illegal withdrawal of Rs. 89 lacs from the Deoghar treasury when he was the chief minister between 1994-96.

The RJD jumped to its leader's defence, insisting the presence of the two was "co-incidental".

JD-U general secretary K C Tyagi said a new political chapter has begun with the court's decision and it means politicians will be afraid of committing any such wrongdoing.

The 69-year-old RJD president had five cases against him in the Rs 900 crore fodder scam. The police launched a probe into the matter after they discovered that one of the jailed men is a close aide of the fodder scam convict.

Patna/Ranchi: Bihar Health minister Mangal Pandey on Tuesday said jailed RJD chief Lalu Prasad was not only a corrupt person but was closely connected to criminals.

When asked if he would want an inquiry into the matter, Yadav shot back, saying "Why?"

They got themselves a place in the same jail where Lalu was later sent on January 6 to serve three and a half years of imprisonment.
