CBI judge Singh who convicted Lalu Prasad applied for gun licence

CBI judge Shivpal Singh who convicted former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad last month in a corruption case, applied for revolver licenses for himself and his two children.Ranchi s special Central Bureau of Investigation applied for the arms licenses last October. "It is highly unusual for a sitting judge to apply for a revolver licence," said a senior official at the district collector s office.Singh first grabbed headlines last June when Prasad s trial began in a 21-year-old fodder scam case. In August, Prasad charged Singh of misbehaving with a defense witness and filed a petition in the high court for transferring his case from Singh s court to another judge.Two days before pronouncing the sentence in January, Singh had hinted that he had received phone calls from Prasad s well wishers but he would follow the law.
