The residence was vacant, officials said.
Prasad, who also served as the railway minister in the UPA-1 government, has been behind bars since December, 2017 in cases related to the fodder scam in the 1990s in Bihar, when money was fraudulently withdrawn from treasuries in the name of supplying fodder to animals.
He was undergoing treatment at RIMS for multiple ailments.
