New Delhi: Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has started probing Rashtriya Janata Dal chief and former railway minister Lalu Prasad Yadav in connection with a corruption case.


Sources reveal that CBI has over 100 questions which would take an entire day to clear the doubts.

CBI has scheduled to question Tejashwi Yadav on the same tomorrow.

During his tenure as the minister of Railways from 2004 to 2009, Lalu allegedly handed over maintenance deals of two Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) hotels – BNR Ranchi and BNR Puri – to Sujata Hotel, a private firm owned by Vinay and Vijay Kochhar.

CBI claims that RJD chief received a bribe in the form of three acres of the prime plot of land through a benami company Delight.


On July 7, 2017, the CBI had filed a FIR against Lalu.
