HC quashed four pending cases against Jagannath Mishra
The Jharkhand High Court on Monday quashed the four pending fodder scam cases against former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra on the ground that a person convicted in one case could not be tried in similar cases based on same witnesses and evidences.

The Jharkhand High Court on Monday quashed the four pending fodder scam cases against former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra on the ground that a person convicted in one case could not be tried in similar cases based on same witnesses and evidences.

The court of RR Prasad, which had reserved the judgement after the conclusion of hearing last month, pronounced the verdict nearly 10 months after Mishra was convicted by a lower court in one of the five fodder cases lodged against him.

On September 3, 2013, Mishra, along with another ex-Bihar CM Lalu Prasad, and others were convicted by a special CBI court in the RC20A/96 case pertaining to fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.7 crore from Chaibasa Treasury.

He was sentenced to four years' rigorous imprisonment on October 3.
