A bench, comprising Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, and Justices BR Gavai and Surya Kant, sought a response from Yadav on the plea filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation.

The probe agency has challenged the 12 July, 2019, order passed by the high court at Ranchi, saying it had "erroneously" suspended the sentence awarded by the trial court and released the RJD chief on bail in one of the fodder scam cases.

The high court had granted Yadav bail in the case of fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 89.27 lakh from the Deoghar treasury on the ground that he had served half of his prison term of three-and-a-half years.
