The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief's son, Tejashwi Yadav, said that they had requested the prison authorities in Ranchi to convey the news to Lalu.

Devi, who was the only sister of Lalu, was suffering from old age problems.

"It is extremely sad that I lost my beloved aunt today. She was my only aunt and my father's only sister among six brothers. Both Lalu ji and aunt were very close to each other. We have requested jailer to send this information to Lalu Ji. She was constantly praying for him", Tejaswi told the media.

Lalu was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in jail by special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in the case relating to embezzling of more than Rs 89 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury between 1991 and 1994. ( ANI )
