A court in Delhi on Friday granted bail to Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad’s wife Rabri Devi and son Tejashwi Yadav in the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) scam case.
A special court, that had asked the accused to appear before it on August 31, granted them bail, reported PTI.
The Central Bureau of Investigation had in April filed the chargesheet in the IRCTC hotels maintenance contract case against 12 people and two companies. The case relates to alleged irregularities in the allotment of contracts of two IRCTC hotels in Ranchi and Odisha’s Puri in 2006 to a private firm involving a bribe in the form of a three-acre commercial plot at a prime location in Patna district.
Besides Lalu Prasad and his family members, Prasad’s party colleague PC Gupta, his wife Sarla Gupta, and firm Lara Projects are among the accused.
The Enforcement Directorate had also filed a chargesheet in the case on August 24 charging the accused with money laundering.
