According to his lawyer, witnesses were produced by Lalu in two cases. His statement was recorded in another case on Tuesday.

The three cases in which Lalu appeared are related to the fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 49 crore from Doran (Ranchi), Rs 33 crore from Chaibasa and Rs 95 lakh from Deoghar treasuries.

In May, Lalu Prasad was convicted and sentenced to five-year imprisonment in one of the five cases for which he is being tried in the fodder scam.

The Rs 900-crore scam surfaced in the early 1990s when he was the chief minister.

The majority of the cases are related to the southern region of then undivided Bihar, which after the division form the state of Jharkhand.

He is currently on bail.
