The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a charge sheet in the Rouse Avenue Court of Delhi regarding the alleged land-for-job scam case. The charge sheet includes former Union Minister of Railways Lalu Prasad Yadav, former Chief Minister of Bihar Rabri Devi, Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Tejashwi Prasad Yadav, and several others.
The CBI’s Special Public Prosecutor, advocate DP Singh, informed the court that a fresh charge sheet has been filed due to a different modus operandi involved in the alleged act, even though a charge sheet had already been filed previously. The court was also informed that sanctions are still awaited against Lalu and three others.
The case revolves around the allegation that the Yadav family and their associates received land parcels as gifts or at discounted rates in exchange for jobs in the Railways.
Tejashwi Yadav, in response to the allegations, has denied any wrongdoing. He stated that Lalu Prasad, who served as the Railway Minister, had no authority to provide employment in exchange for favors.
