Land-for-jobs scam: Bihar deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav Summoned by CBI

New Delhi: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav was summoned by the Central Bureau of India (CBI) for interrogation in the land for a job scam on Saturday.

Tejashwi Yadav is the younger son of former Minister of Railways Lalu Prasad Yadav. He was earlier summoned by the CBI on February 4. But he had not appeared before the probe agency.

On March 10, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided Tejashwi Yadav’s Delhi residence in Delhi in connection with this Land for Job case.

ED on Friday raided 15 locations in three states in connection with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) land for job scam. Raids are also underway at the house of RJD leader and Lalu Prasad Yadav’s aide Abu Dojana in Bihar’s Patna.

Earlier former Bihar CM Rabri Devi and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav were questioned by the CBI in connection with this land-for-jobs scam.

It is alleged that during Lalu’s tenure as the railway minister, people were given employment in the railways in return for land parcels gifted or sold at cheap rates to the Yadav family and its associates.

The CBI has filed a chargesheet in the case against  Lalu Prasad, his wife and former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi and 14 others under charges of criminal conspiracy and provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act, and all the accused have been summoned on March 15.
