CBI Judge Shiv Pal Singh said he got phone calls from Yadav's men but didn't specify what was said to him. 

The judge who was trying RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in a fodder scam case in Ranchi revealed recently that he had got several phone calls from his party loyalists.

"I got many references for you but don't worry, I will follow only law," the judge told Yadav then.
