Ranchi: Former Bihar Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav was fined Rs 6,000 in a 13-year-old poll code violation case on Wednesday by a special court in Jharkhand's Palamu.

Lalu Prasad Yadav had appeared before the special MP, MLA court in connection with a model code of conduct violation case of 2009. "After hearing the petition of Former Bihar CM and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, the Court has imposed a fine of Rs 6000 on him. The case has been disposed and he is free of charges now. He does not need to come here again," said Advocate Dhirendra Kumar Singh, Lalu Prasad Yadav's lawyer.

Last month, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed FIR in the 'land for railway job' case named Lalu Yadav, his wife, daughters and several others as accused in the case.

The CBI conducted searches at 17 locations belonging to Lalu Yadav and his family members in Delhi and Bihar. The alleged scam took place when Yadav was Railway Minister between 2004 to 2009.

Meanwhile, Lalu Yadav has filed an application at the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ranchi seeking the release of his passport for renewal as he has to go abroad for a kidney transplant.

Meanwhile, the application has been filed in court so that passport can be renewed. The renewed passport will be submitted again to the court," Prabhat Kumar, Yadav's lawyer told.
