Lalu Prasad to be prosecuted in land-for-jobs scam after CBI gets Center nod

New Delhi: According to sources, Lalu Prasad Yadav, the former minister of railways, would be prosecuted by the Central Bureau of Investigation in relation to the land-for-jobs scandal.

On Friday, the agency brought the sanction before a special court, according to them.

According to them, the special court must receive a sanction to prosecute from the appropriate authorities before it can consider the agency's charge sheet.

The CBI had filed on October 7 last year a charge sheet against Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi and 14 others in connection with alleged appointments made in the Railways in return for land parcels gifted or sold to his family but the cognisance was pending.

In its charge sheet filed before a special CBI court here, the agency has also named Prasad’s daughter Misa Bharti, former general manager of Central Railways Sowmya Raghvan, former CPO Railways Kamal Deep Mainrai, seven aspirants appointed as substitutes and four private individuals.

“During the investigation, it has been found that the accused in conspiracy with the then GM, Central Railways, and CPO, Central Railways, engaged persons as substitutes in lieu of land either in their name or in the name of their close relatives,” a CBI spokesperson had said in a statement.
