RJD President Lalu Prasad today escaped unhurt when a makeshift wooden platform raised at a Yagna site in Saran district collapsed.

As soon as Prasad and RJD Secretary General Ramkripal Yadav climbed the platform constructed on the occasion of a Maha Rudra Yagna at Madhurup in Saran district it collapsed due to overload, party sources said.

The security personnel intervened and removed Prasad and Yadav from the site.

"I am fine and did not receive any injury in the incident," Prasad told PTI.

The two leaders later addressed the gathering from the same broken platform.

Prasad is a Lok Sabha member from Chhapra constituency which is part of Saran district.
