Patna : Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav’s elder sister Gangotri Devi died on Sunday at the age of 75 years due to prolonged illness. Soon after receiving the information, Rabri Devi along with sons Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav rushed to her sister-in-law’s residence.
The sad demise of Gangotri Devi comes a day after Lalu was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail by special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ranchi in connection with the fodder scam relating to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury 21 years ago.
Meanwhile, Prasad’s son Tejashwi Yadav said in Patna that they will move high court against his father’s conviction. “We will move high court against Lalu Prasad’s conviction and appeal for bail after studying the court verdict,” he said.
