CBI judge who convicted Lalu seeks arms license

Ranchi: A CBI judge who sentenced former Bihar Chief Minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad in a corruption case has applied for a license to obtain a revolver along with his family members.

Shivapal Singh sent Lalu Prasad on January 6 to three-and-a-half-years imprisonment.

Singh, his son and daughter have applied for the license. The application is in the process, official sources said on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Ranchi District Bar Association on Thursday decided to boycott the court of the CBI judge. The Bar was unhappy as Singh allegedly denied time to a lawyer in a Ranchi court whose father had died.
