Patna: The CBI team raided 17 locations of Lalu Yadav and his family. This raid lasted for 14 hours. Earlier, the CBI has registered an FIR against 15 people, including four members of the Lalu family. These raids were conducted at the places of Lalu Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi and daughter Misa Bharti in Patna, Gopalganj and Delhi. Meanwhile, RJD workers raised slogans against CBI.
To save them from the workers, Rabri and Tej Pratap themselves had to come to drop the CBI officers till the gate. RJD workers created ruckus outside Rabri Devi residence. After the raid, CBI officers were facing difficulty in getting out of Rabri’s residence. RJD workers were shouting slogans and pushing outside the gate.
This case is related to railway recruitment scam. It is alleged that Lalu had written the names of people close to him in lieu of giving jobs in the Railways while being the Railway Minister. Later these lands were gifted in the name of himself and family members.
Apart from Lalu, Rabri, daughter Misa and daughter Hema are named in the FIR. Hema’s name has come up for the first time in any case. Hema is the fifth daughter of Lalu Yadav. Hema Yadav has completed her B.Tech degree from BIT Ranchi. Hema is married in a political family of Delhi. Hema’s husband’s name Vineet Yadav is also active in politics.
His daughter Rohini Acharya has raised questions on the CBI action on Lalu Yadav. Rohini wrote on Twitter, “There was great carelessness in Lalu’s railway tenure, allegation of Savarkar’s descendant, how did Lalu ji give a profit of 90,000 crores to the railways, how did Lalu take out recruitment for lakhs of youth? Let us inform that a few weeks ago, Lalu Prasad Yadav got bail in the Doranda Treasury case related to the fodder scam.
