A medical board has been constituted on Saturday to submit a report on Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's health condition to the jail authority.

"The report prepared by the medical board will be reviewed by the jail authority and the decision will be taken accordingly," said Birendra Bhushan, Jharkhand inspector general (IG) Prison.

The former Chief Minister of Bihar is admitted at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Ranchi for the treatment of lung infection. The result of his COVID-19 report was negative.

Dr Umesh Prasad, the physician of the jailed RJD chief, had said last month that his kidney was functioning at 25 per cent capacity and the situation can deteriorate.

Lalu Prasad Yadav has been convicted in the fodder scam cases.
