Prasad was earlier disqualified from contesting any election and was also sentenced to five years of Jail in one of the cases arising out of the fodder scam.

In September 2014, Lalu was convicted by a Special CBI court in Ranchi along with 44 others in the case relating to the withdrawal of 37.70 crore from the Chaibasa treasury in the fodder scam. Later in December he was granted bail by the Supreme Court.
