CBI Reopens Probe Against Lalu Yadav In Railway Projects Case

New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has reopened a corruption case against former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, months after his party tied up with Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United (JDU) and formed the government in Bihar, according to an NDTV report.

It may be recalled that the CBI had in 2018 started a probe into allegations of corruption in the allotment of Railway projects when Yadav held the portfolio in the UPA-1 government. The inquiry was closed in May 2021, with CBI sources saying that “no case has been made out of the allegations”. Apart from Mr Yadav, his son and Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, and daughters Chanda Yadav and Ragini Yadav are among the accused in the case.
