IRCTC Scam: Lalu Yadav, Tejaswi & Rabri Devi Granted Bail By Delhi Court
New Delhi: Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Monday granted regular bail to former Bihar CM Lalu Prasad Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi and son Tejaswi Yadav in connection with the money laundering scam in the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) scam. Despite getting bail, Lalu will continue to remain in jail over the fodder scam case against him.
Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj of Patiala House Court granted the bail on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and one surety of like amount each. The next hearing has been scheduled for February 11.
The court also directed the accused to surrender their passports and asked them not to leave the country without prior intimation.
Welcoming the order, Tejashwi Yadav told reporters, “We are confident of getting justice. We trust the judiciary.”
Tejaswi also alleged that they were being framed by the BJP in the case. He added that even Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav and BSP Supremo Mayawati have recently come under the CBI’s scanner ever since they joined hands against the saffron party ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections.
