New Delhi, February 21 (PTI): A special CBI court on Monday sentenced RJD supremo Lalu Prasad to five years in prison and slapped a fine of Rs 60 lakh on him in connection with the Rs 139 crore Doranda treasury embezzlement case of the fodder scam.

The court pronounced the sentence after virtually hearing arguments on the quantum of sentence.
