Lalu Yadav's son Tej Pratap marries Aishwarya Rai in Patna

Lalu Prasad Yadav

No decision yet on Lalu Yadav's parole plea for son's wedding, says Jharkhand Police

"The party has no clue who did it", a RJD source said.

As the family is busy with the pre-wedding functions, a small video clip shows Lalu's sons - Tej Pratap and Tejashwi - can be seen dancing their heart out. After the wedding, Prasad will fly to Ranchi on Monday to report to jail authorities.

Lalu Prasad arrived here on Thursday from Ranchi on parole for three days to attend the elder son's marriage.

News of a provisional bail for Lalu and dismissal of another case against Tejashwi in the Jharkhand High Court lifted the family's spirits. "Invitations have been sent to nearly every major political figure and luminaries from various walks of life", Bihar RJD president Ram Chandra Purve said here.

"With Karnataka polls on Saturday, many Congress and BJP leaders may not make it to the wedding", a senior RJD leader said.
