Land-for-jobs case: Bihar deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav appears before ED
Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav on Tuesday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in a money laundering case related to the railway land scam case.
The 33-year-old Yadav, son of RJD leader and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad, arrived at the federal agency’s office in central Delhi with a carcade.
The CBI had interrogated him in the case last month.
Based on the CBI FIR, the ED will register a separate case under sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and record Tejashwi Yadav’s statement, sources said.
Tejashwi Yadav’s MP sister Misa Bharti was questioned by the ED in the case on March 25, the same day she was deposed before the CBI.
The two central agencies recently initiated action in the case, with the CBI investigating Lalu Prasad and his wife and former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi and the enforcement agencies raiding the RJD leader’s family.
