Lalu is currently in Delhi with daughter Misa Bharti.
Former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav has received another major relief. The CBI has given a clean chit to Lalu Yadav in the DLF bribery case. In 2018, the case was registered on the basis of preliminary investigation, in which the CBI could no longer find evidence.
Let us tell you that on 26 July 2017, Nitish Kumar toppled the government of the Grand Alliance in Bihar only after the name of the Lalu family in the IRCTC and DLF bribery scandal. One of which is still under investigation in the IRCTC tender scam.
This was the whole case
Lalu Prasad was alleged that in 2007, the alleged shell company AB Export Private Limited bought a property worth Rs 5 crore in New Friends Colony, Delhi. This colony was prepared by DLF. In 2011, Lalu Yadav’s children Tejashwi Yadav, Chanda and Ragini bought AB Export for Rs 4 lakh. In this way, Lalu had allegedly got properties worth crores for only 4 lakh rupees.
The allegation was that DLF had brought a bribe to Lalu Prasad through AB Export. The bribe was given to him in return for a project at New Delhi Railway Station and Bandra Railway Station. It is being said that after this clean chit, the case of economic crime will also be weakened and Lalu Prasad’s side will be strengthened.
On this decision, RJD spokesperson Mrityunjay Tiwari said that it was just a conspiracy of his opponents to remove political enmity with Lalu Prasad. Now all the allegations are coming out of the air.
IRCTC and DLF fell in 2017 in the name of bribery scandal
In 2017, Nitish Kumar along with RJD and Congress was running the government in Bihar. At that time, the BJP was in opposition in Bihar. He needed to surround the government. That’s when the buzz of the IRCTC tender scam and the DLF bribery scandal began to be heard in Bihar. The BJP uprooted it and Nitish Kumar left Lalu. Overnight formed government with BJP.
IRCTC Tender Scam Investigation Continues
In the IRCTC tender scam, the Lalu family is accused of taking land in the name of getting the tender. In this case, CBI and ED have registered a case in 2018. Right now Lalu Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi and son Tejashwi Yadav are out on bail from the special court of ED in Patiala House, New Delhi.
The scandal is alleged to have started in 2005, when Lalu Prasad Yadav was the railway minister. The two hotels of the railway at Ranchi, Jharkhand and Puri in Odisha are given to M / s Sujata Hotel Pvt. Was given on lease.
It is alleged that the tender rules for leasing the hotel were relaxed and when the hotel got on lease, Delight Marketing Company got 3 acres of land in Patna instead. Vinay Kochhar, director of Chanakya Hotel, sold this land for 1 crore 47 lakhs, while the price of this land in the market at that time was around two crore rupees.
Delight Marketing Company was named after Sarla Gupta, wife of RJD MP Prem Chand Gupta. The CBI says that this company was a benami company of the Lalu family. In 2014, shares of Delight Marketing Company were transferred to the Lara Project.
Lalu’s wife Rabri Devi and son Tejaswi are directors in the Lara Project Company, when the entire share was transferred from Delight Marketing Company to Lara Project, the value of this land was around 32 crores. The most surprising thing here is that this land worth 32 crores was transferred to Lalu’s family company Lara Project with only 65 lakh rupees.
Lalu is home to daughter from May 1 in Delhi
Lalu has been in Delhi ever since he got bail in the fodder scam case. There, Rajya Sabha MP Betti Misa is taking health care at the official residence of Bharti. He is currently suffering from 16 types of diseases. The daughter may have come to the residence, but she has to remain under the supervision of the doctors of AIIMS.
Lalu has been confronting face to face with CBI
Lalu Yadav and CBI have come face to face quite often. So far Lalu Yadav has gone to jail in Chara Ghetale six times. At the same time, the case of withdrawal from Doranda Treasury has not been completed in the court. There was a debate in this case, but due to Kovid, the hearing has been banned in the CBI court. However, he has been convicted in four other cases of fodder scam. He is currently out of jail on bail.
Lalu has been sentenced in these 4 fodder scam cases
First case: Chaibasa Treasury Case
Second case: Deoghar Treasury Case
Third case: Chaibasa Treasury Case
Fourth case: Dumka Treasury Case
