ED files charge sheet against Lalu Prasad’s family, others

Katyal was arrested in this case by the ED in November 2023, while Lalu Prasad Yadav was summoned by the agency but is yet to depose.

However, Lalu’s son, Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, has deposed once before the agency. He has been asked to appear again before it.

Rabri Devi, RJD Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti and two more of the latter’s sisters—Chanda Yadav and Ragini Yadav—have also been questioned in this case.

The alleged scam pertains to the period when Lalu Prasad Yadav was the railway minister in the UPA-1 government.

It is alleged that from 2004 to 2009, several people were appointed to Group D positions in various zones of the Indian Railways and, in lieu, these people transferred their land to the family members of then-railway minister Lalu Prasad Yadav and the company A.K. Infosystems, which is linked to his family.

A.K. Infosystems is allegedly a “beneficiary company” in the case and its registered address in South Delhi’s New Friend’s Colony was being used by Tejashwi Yadav, the ED had said earlier. Katyal has also been a director of this company, as per the agency.
