Land-for-Jobs Scam: CBI Raids 9 Premises of RJD MLA & Rajya Sabha MP

New Delhi: As part of the ongoing investigation into the land-for-jobs scam, the CBI on Tuesday conducted searches on the premises of RJD MLA Kiran Devi and Rajya Sabha member Prem Chand Gupta. These raids were conducted at nine locations in Delhi, Bihar, UP and Haryana.

The searches were conducted by CBI when the alleged role of the two RJD leaders came up in the land-for-jobs scam.

The searches were made in Arrah and Patna in Bihar on the premises of Kiran Devi and her husband Arun Singh. The premises of Gupta were searched in Gurugram, Rewari, Noida and Delhi.

It is alleged that during RJD supremo Lalu Prasad’s tenure as railway minister from 2004-2009, several appointments were made in the Central Railways in violation of norms and procedures of recruitment.

The beneficiaries allegedly gave away land patches for free or at extremely low prices to the members of Lalu Prasad’s family or acquaintances.
