PATNA: Important files related to the Bihar Animal and Fisheries Resources Department office in Patna have reportedly gone missing.

According to sources, the missing files are said to be linked to the mid-1990s fodder scam. An FIR has been registered at the old secretariat police station in this regard.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Nitin Naveen raised serious objections to the way Nitish Kumar-led grand alliance government in Bihar is functioning and questioned whether attempts were being made to protect RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.

“Nitish Kumar should tell how why he is protecting Lalu Yadav. The files that have gone missing are linked to Lalu Yadav. Nitish Kumar’s action is affecting the future of Bihar,” he said.

The fodder scam involved the embezzlement of about Rs. 9.4 billion from the government treasury of Bihar.

The fodder scam relates to fraudulent withdrawal of around 1,000 crore rupees by Animal Husbandry department from various districts when Lalu was the Bihar chief minister from 1990 to 1997.
