PATNA: A senior judge who handed out jail term to RJD chief Lalu Prasad in fodder scam cases had a providential escape when a speeding car hit his vehicle in Ranchi on Monday.
Reports quoting local media said the former CBI judge Shivpal Singh currently posted as district and sessions judge, Godda, had come to Ranchi to pick up his daughter from a local railway station when a speeding Alto car coming from opposite direction hit his vehicle.
The Judge escaped unhurt in the incident but the front portion of his car was badly damaged in the incident. Soon after the incident, the car driver fled the scene.
The judge had hit the headlines when he awarded jail sentence to the RJD president in two fodder scam cases earlier this year.
