Patna: Bhola Yadav, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) legislator and a close aide of party President Lalu Prasad Yadav, narrowly escaped prison time on Friday when he failed to appear before a special CBI court that had summoned him to appear before the court in person and explain his derogatory remarks against the CBI court that had convicted the RJD chief in a number of fodder scam-related cases.

When Bhola Yadav failed to show up in the court on the scheduled date, the court issued an arrest order against him. He finally appeared before the special CBI judge Shivpal Singh on Friday at which time the judge asked the police to arrest him.

While arguing with the judge that he never made any disparaging or vulgar remarks against the court when the court had issued its verdict against Lalu Prasad Yadav, the judge opened his laptop and showed him the video of the moment when he was calling all sorts of names to the court.

With his arrest imminent, Bhola Yadav then begged the judge not to send him to jail and promised he would never make the same mistake ever again.

The court finally allowed Yadav to avoid prison term if he posted a bail of Rs. 1 lakh.

Bhola Yadav had been a trusted assistant of the beleaguered RJD chief during his entire fodder scam trial in Ranchi where he was convicted in a number of cases earning him years in jail. He was last seen by the side of Lalu Prasad Yadav a couple of days ago outside Patna Airport where he was pushing the wheelchair with the RJD chief on it after the Ranchi court granted him a six-week conditional furlough on medical ground.
