Lalu Prasad Yadav

While speaking to the media, lawyer Arvind Singh said in a statement, "The CBI court of Shivapal Singh issued the notices asking why contempt should not be initiated against the four people for their statements issued after Lalu Prasad was convicted".

The court has directed them to personally appear before the court on 23 January.

After convicting Prasad and 15 others, including three IAS officers, politicians, former animal husbandry department officials and suppliers, the court had fixed Wednesday to pronounce quantum of punishment.

In May 2017, the Supreme Court ruled that Lalu Yadav will have to stand trial in all the fodder scam cases, setting aside the high court order that dropped cases charges against the former Bihar chief minister.
