Delhi’s Patiala Court on Monday granted regular bail to former Bihar chief minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, son Tejashwi Yadav and others in a money laundering case against them in the IRCTC scam case.
All the accused in the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) scam case have been granted bail on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and a surety amount each.
The next date of hearing is February 11.
After being granted bail, Tejashwi Yadav expressed confidence in getting justice saying “We trust in the judiciary”.
Earlier in December, a Delhi court had granted interim bail to RJD chief Lalu Prasad till January 19 in two IRCTC scam cases filed by the CBI and the ED.
The court had earlier granted regular bail to Rabri Devi and son Tejashwi in the CBI case, while they are on interim bail in the ED matter.
The cases relate to alleged irregularities in granting operational contract of two IRCTC hotels to a private firm.
The CBI had registered a corruption case in July, 2017 against Lalu Prasad, Rabri Devi, and Tejashwi Yadav for alleged irregularities in the allotment of contracts for two Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) hotels in Ranchi and Puri in 2006 to a private firm when the Rashtriya Janata Dal chief was the Railways Minister.
Later, the Enforcement Directorate also registered a case under the PMLA.
