In 2014, the Jharkhand High Court had given relief to the former Bihar Chief Minister and others by dropping charges of criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust and prevention of corruption. The court had quashed the cases on the grounds that a person convicted in one case could not be tried in similar cases based on same witnesses and evidences.
However, the CBI had contended that though the cases have arisen from fodder scam, they are different in nature as different amounts were involved from different treasuries.
The Supreme Court had heard arguments by Mr Yadav's lawyer Ram Jethmalani and the CBI had reserved its order on April 20.
In October 2013, Mr Yadav was convicted in one of the cases - on charges of embezzling Rs 37 crore. But he received bail in December 2013 from the Supreme Court.
Over 50 cases were registered for embezzlement of funds on the pretext of buying fodder for cattle, among others.
