NEW DELHI :
THE CBI on Saturday questioned the private secretary of Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav in connection with land-for-jobs “scam” in the Railways when his father Lalu Prasad was the Minister, officials said. Sanjay Yadav was summoned to appear before the agency on Saturday, a day after the CBI chargesheeted Lalu Prasad, Rabri Devi and their daughter Misa Bharti in the case, they said. Sanjay, who served as Tejashwi’s PS during his first tenure as Deputy CM in 2015 as well, was summoned earlier also but he had challenged the CBI notices before the Delhi High Court, they said.
Officials said Sanjay arrived at the agency headquarters here in the morning where he is being questioned. Meanwhile, Tejashwi Yadav sought to link the development to the BJP’s loss of power in the State where it is now pitted against a formidable multi-party ‘Mahagathbandhan’. The RJD heir apparent, who had earlier mockingly asked Central investigating agencies to open their offices at his residence, added tongue in cheek that after the CBI, he expected ED to swing into action.
