Lalu Prasad Yadav’s only Sister Gangotri Devi passed away on Sunday, a day after the RJD chief was sentenced to 3.5 years jail in relation to fodder scam case. Lalu’s wife, Rabri Devi rushed to her sister-in-law’s residence who had died of shock after hearing the news of her brother’s 3.5 years sentence.
Rabri Devi said that the 73-year-old Gangotri had for the past few days been praying continuously for Lalu’s acquittal in the case. Even on Sunday, she spent the entire day praying for her brother’s release, Rabri said.
But she died out of shock as she could not bear hearing the sentence, she told the media. As soon as the news came out, Lalu’s son Tejaswi and Tej Pratap paid floral tributes to their aunt.
In the meantime, a pall of gloom descended in the RJD circles, after the party chief was arrested and now after his sister shocking death, no one seemed to be in a mood to talk and answer to any questions.
Lalu’s sister is four years elder to him and a resident of Chakrapan village in Gopalganj district, Gangotri was currently staying with her son Rudal Yadav. She was later cremated at her native village on Monday. Though the news was communicated to Lalu, he will not be able to attend his sister’s funeral because of imprisonment.
