Phone call row: Lalu Yadav shifted from hospital director's bungalow to paying ward
Lalu Prasad has been in th jail since December, 2017.
A day after his purported phonecall to a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA triggered an uproar in Bihar, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad on Thursday was shifted to the paying ward of Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS), Ranchi from the bungalow of the hospital's director.
Lalu, who has been convicted in multiple fodder scam cases, has been undergoing treatment at RIIMS for several ailments.
"Lalu Prasad Yadav was shifted from the bungalow of the director to room number A-11 of the paying ward today," Dr Waghmare Krishna Prasad, Additional Director of RIMS and Joint Health Secretary of Jharkhand, told PTI.
The former Bihar chief minister was transferred from the paying ward of the RIMS to the residence of its director in August to protect him
from exposure to coronavirus.
