RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s son Tejaswi Yadav today appeared before the CBI in connection with the ongoing probe into the 2006 IRCTC hotel case.
CBI spokesperson Abhishek Dayal told IANS that Tejaswi was being questioned at the CBI headquarters in New Delhi.
The questioning comes a day after Lalu Prasad was questioned for seven hours in connection with the case.
The CBI had on September 26 issued fresh summons — the third in a month — to the RJD chief and his son in the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corp (IRCTC) contract case.
The contracts were given to Sujata Hotels, a company owned by Vijay and Vinay Kochhar allegedly in lieu of bribe in the form of a plot of prime land in Bihar, the CBI said.
The Enforcement Directorate had on July 27 registered a separate case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act following the CBI FIR and was probing Lalu Prasad, Tejaswi and others for alleged transfer of money through shell companies.
