RJD chief Lalu Prasad suffered minor injuries in his back after he fell down following a stage collapse during a religious event at Digha in western Patna on Friday evening.
Prasad had gone there to attend a yajna around 7pm. As he started to move towards his seat on the stage, it collapsed as a large number of devotees had climbed on to the temporary structure. Lalu lost balance and fell on the ground.
Though Prasad went home immediately after the incident, he later complained of pain in the back and ribs. He was then rushed to the IGIMS where doctors carried out tests and also conducted an X-ray.
But the reports showed that there were no fractures and no major injuries, sources said. Later, Prasad also talked to mediapersons and said he was fine but had some pain in the back. The RJD chief returned to his 10, Ciruclar Road residence around 9.30 pm.
Prasad’s son and deputy chief minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav and senior RJD leaders were present at IGIMS. Source said doctors advised complete rest for Lalu for several days.
