In the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) land scam case, the Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Friday granted bail to all the accused members including former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi and her son and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav among the others. The accused have to deposit a personal bond and surety of Rs one lakh each, reported ANI.

On CBI’s persuasion, a production warrant has been issued against RJD Chief Lalu Yadav, who is one of the accused in the scam. RJD President surrendered on Thursday at the Ranchi court in the fodder scam case due to which he was not present before the court on Friday.

Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj has asked Lalu Yadav to be present in the next hearing on October 6.

The charge sheet filed earlier this week by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) included names of–former Union minister Prem Chand Gupta and his wife Sarla Gupta, Agarwal, then managing director of IRCTC PK Goyal and then IRCTC director Rakesh Saxena, besides Lalu and his family, reported PTI.

The 2006 case involves alleged irregularities in the allotment of two railway hotels at Puri and Ranchi to Sujata Hotel Private Limited owned by Vijay and Vinay Kochhar in lieu of a bribe in the form of land in Patna to Ms Delight Marketing Company Pvt Ltd (now called Lara Projects) at a very cheap rate.

ED stated, “In lieu thereof, 358 decimal (3.5 acre) of prime land were transferred to Delight Marketing Company Pvt Ltd (a company owned by the family of Gupta) in February 2005 at a consideration which was much less than the then prevailing circle rates,” reported Zee News.

The shares of the Delight Marketing Company Private Limited were acquired by Rabri Devi and Tejashwi at less than fair market value, Zee News reported. They bought prime land through share purchase at nominal prices alleged ED.

In April, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a charge sheet against 12 people and two companies.
