In a major development, the Delhi’s Patiala House Court reserved order on the bail plea of RJD chief and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav in the IRCTC scam case.
Sources informed that the court is all set to now hear the case filed by the CBI on February 11.
The Enforcement Directorate did file a reply in the court and has opposed the regular bail plea to all the accused in the case.
The CBI had filed the chargesheet against the RJD chief and his wife in the case on April 16, 2018 and it had said that there was enough evidence against Lalu, Rabri, Tejashwi and others.
Besides Lalu Prasad and his family members, the CBI had also named 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 in the chargesheet.
