New Delhi: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Yadav’s trouble seems to be rising every day as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today registered a case against him, wife Rabri Devi and their son Tejashwi Yadav, who is deputy Chief Minister of Bihar.
The tender, awarded during Lalu’s tenure as the railway minister (2004-2009), was to develop and maintain hotels in Ranchi and Puri.
The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) took over the BNR hotels in Ranchi and Puri from the Indian Railways in January 2006. It invited bids in November to develop, maintain and operate the hotels for 15 years on a licence-fee model.
Sujata Hotel Private Limited bagged the contract and paid Rs 15.45 crore and Rs 9.96 crore as license fee for BNR hotels in Ranchi and Puri, respectively.
Searches were being carried out on Friday morning at 12 locations, Delhi, Patna, Ranchi, Puri and Gurgaon.
