Lalu Yadav Family’s Assets Worth Rs 6 Crore Seized in Connection to Land-for-Job Scam

“Enforcement Directorate Seizes Rs 6 Crore Worth of Assets Linked to Lalu Yadav’s Family in Land-for-Job Scam Probe”

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has taken action by attaching assets worth Rs 6 crore, which have been found to be connected to RJD chief Lalu Yadav’s family in the ongoing investigation of the alleged land-for-job scam. The case revolves around alleged appointments made in the railways in exchange for land parcels gifted or sold to Yadav’s family during his tenure as the Union Railway Minister from 2004 to 2009. The jobs were purportedly traded for land parcels provided at discounted rates to the Yadav family and their associates.

Former Bihar chief minister and Lalu Yadav’s wife, Rabri Devi, was questioned by the ED for approximately five hours on May 18 in connection with the money laundering case linked to this alleged scam. Other members of the Yadav family, including Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, RJD MP Misa Bharti, Chanda Yadav, and Ragini Yadav, have also faced questioning in the course of the investigation over the past few months.

In July, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a second chargesheet against 18 individuals, including Lalu Yadav, his son, and wife, in relation to this case. The probe agency had previously filed the initial chargesheet on May 18, 2022, naming Lalu Yadav and 15 others, including his wife, two daughters, and unidentified public servants.
