Ranchi: The Jharkhand High Court on Friday granted bail to former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav in a fodder scam case related to Chaibasa treasury.

It also sought his medical report and the details of all those he has met during the course of his treatment at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences in Ranchi.
