A special CBI court in Ranchi pronounced Lalu Prasad Yadav guilty in the third fodder scam Wednesday morning.
The court also found former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Mishra guilty.
This is the third fodder scam case -- referred to as the Chaibasa treasury case -- Lalu has been found guilty in. He is accused in a total of six fodder scam cases.
Lalu is currently serving a 3.5-year jail term in Ranchi's Birsa Munda jail after being found guilty (in a fodder scam case) on December 23, 2017.
An earlier conviction in 2013 for five years had made him ineligible to stand for elections for six years.
