Lalu, who has been summoned by the CBI court, would arrive in Ranchi on Thursday to appear in the court on Friday.

Lalu has been issued summon in connection with a case related to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 95 lakh from Deoghar treasury.

The summon has been issued after the Supreme Court in May set aside Jharkhand High Court ruling and said Lalu and others made accused in different cases would have to face the cases separately.

Lalu has been convicted and sentenced to five years' imprisonment in one of the five cases of fodder scam for which he was tried.

The Rs 900 crore fodder scam surfaced in early 1990s when Lalu was the Bihar chief minister. Most of the cases cropped up in the Jharkhand region of the then undivided Bihar.
