NEW DELH: Former Bihar deputy Chief Minister Tejasvi Yadav was on Friday questioned by the CBI in connection with IRCTC hotel contract scam case. Tejasvi, also the son of senior RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, appeared before the CBI here around 1100 hrs.
The probe agency had on Thursday questioned RJD chief Lalu Prasad in connection with the same case.
The case allegedly involving the father and the son relates to irregularities in the award of contract of two Railway hotels in Ranchi and Puri to Patna-based Sujata Hotels in 2006.
Mr Prasad was Railway Minister in 2006 when the hotels were first transferred to IRCTC and then to the company. According to the CBI charge sheet, the accused misused their offices to ensure that the contract was given to Sujata Hotels in lieu of a three-acre commercial property in Patna.
The property was acquired through a company Delight Marketing Company.
Tejasvi’s sister Misa Bharti is also facing Enforcement Directorate probe in the alleged money laundering case. (AGENCIES)
