According to RJD leader Bhola Yadav, Lalu Prasad suddenly complained of breathing problem and pain in his chest after which he was admitted to the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Science.

"Lalu is under observation..." he said, adding that Lalu Prasad has been suffering from as many as 16 ailments.

The convicted RJD chief was granted provisional bail of six weeks earlier this week after nearly five months at the Birsa Munda Central Jail where he is serving a jail term since 23 December, 2017 in connection with the fodder scam.

Lalu Prasad was admitted to RIMS in Ranchi on 17 March.

He has been convicted in four fodder scam cases since 2013, the latest being the Dumka treasury case in which a special CBI court sentenced him to 14 years in jail.
