He appeared in two cases related to fraudulent withdrawal from Deoghar district treasury and Doranda Ranchi treasury. Mishra appeared in the CBI court in the Deoghar case.

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

The summon was issued after the Supreme Court in May set aside a Jharkhand High Court ruling and said that Lalu and other people accused in different cases will have to face cases separately.

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

The Rs 900-crore fodder scam surfaced in the early 1990s when Lalu was the chief minister of Bihar. A majority of the cases belonged to Jharkhand region of the then undivided Bihar.
