Land for Job Scam: Lalu-Rabri and Misa Gets Bail from Rouse Avenue Court

Land for Job Scam

Land for Job Scam: Delhi Rouse Avenue court granted bail to former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad, his wife Rabri Devi, daughter RJD MP Misa Bharti, and 13 others on Wednesday in the Land-For-Job case. CBI has submitted Chargesheet in this case and found trio with others guilty.

The Court noted that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed the chargesheet without arrest. The court directed every accused to furnish Rs 50,000 personal bail bond and a like amount surety.

The CBI has alleged in its chargesheet that irregular appointments were made in the railways, violating the laid down norms and procedures of Indian Railways for recruitment.

In its probe, the CBI found that the accused, in connivance with the then General Manager of Central Railway and CPO of Central Railway had appointed persons in their name or their close relatives in lieu of land. The land was acquired at a price lower than the prevailing circle rate and much lower than the market rate.

It has to be alleged that Lalu Prasad had obtained land in the name of his family members and received pecuniary benefits from the candidates in exchange for jobs in Class D posts in various zones of the Railways.

Several persons residing in Patna themselves or through their family members had sold their land in Patna in favour of Prasad’s family members and a private company controlled by his family was also involved in the transfer of such immovable properties.
