A Delhi court today granted bail to RJD supremo Lalu Prasad’s wife Rabri Devi and son Tejashwi Yadav in an Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) scam case.
Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj also issued a production warrant against Prasad in the case. The court granted bail to Rabri and Tejashwi Yadav on a personal bond of one lakh rupees and a surety of like amount. The hearing in the case has been fixed for sixth of October.
Earlier the court had summoned and asked the Lalu family and others in the case to appear before the court today in the case related to alleged irregularities in granting operational contract of two IRCTC hotels to a private firm. Lalu did not appear before the court today as he is in a Jharkhand jail in another case.
The CBI, which had on April 16 filed the charge sheet in the case, had said there were enough evidence against Lalu, Rabri, Tejashwi and others. The CBI had registered a case in July last year and carried out searches at 12 locations in Patna, Ranchi, Bhubaneswar and Gurgaon in connection with the case.
