ED summons Lalu Yadav's son-in-law for giving loan to Rabri
Former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav's son-in-law, Rahul Yadav, was on Tuesday summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a loan he gave to RJD chief's wife Rabri Devi.
The ED is probing several cases involving Lalu and his family. In December, the ED had served a notice to Lalu's daughter Misa Bharti and her husband Shailesh for questioning in its ongoing probe into a money laundering case.
The Income Tax Department is also probing how shell companies were used by Lalu Prasad and his family to buy expensive properties in Delhi and Patna.
The CBI had in December questioned former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi in connection with the IRCTC hotel tender case. The Enforcement Directorate has last month attached land worth Rs. 44.75 Crore under the PMLA in connection with this case.
On July 7, the CBI carried out searches at 12 locations after registering a corruption case against former railway minister Lalu and his family members, including wife Rabri Devi and his son former deputy chief minister of Bihar Tejashwi Yadav. Lalu had 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.
