New Delhi: The the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) reopened a corruption case against former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav.

CBI has once again opened the case and the move of the national investigation agency is set to create political turmoil

However, the CBI has once again opened the case and the move of the national investigation agency is set to create political turmoil as it comes just months after Yadav’s party tied up with Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United (JDU) and formed the government.

The CBI had begun a probe into allegations of corruption in the allotment of Railway projects when Lalu was the Railway Minister in the UPA-1 government. However, the inquiry was closed in May 2021, with CBI sources saying that “no case has been made out of the allegations”.

It is important to note that Lalu Prasad Yadav’s son and Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, and daughters Chanda Yadav and Ragini Yadav are also among those named in the case.

According to reports, it had been alleged that property was bought by a DLF-funded shell company at Rs 5 crore at a cost much lower than the then market rate of Rs 30 crore. The shell company was then bought by Tejashwi Yadav and other relatives of Lalu for just Rs 4 lakh by a transfer of shares, giving them ownership of the south Delhi bungalow.
