) hotel scam.

The CBI has alleged that Tejashwi intimidated officers. Special judge

Geetanjali Goel

issued notice to Tejashwi and sought his response. The RJD leader and his mother Rabri Devi have been on bail since 2018. The case relates to an alleged scam in the IRCTC hotel maintenance contract in which the CBI has charge-sheeted 12 people and two companies.

The agency claims irregularities in awarding contracts for two IRCTC hotels — one each in Ranchi and Odisha’s Puri to a private firm in 2006 — in return for payments in the shape of a three-acre commercial site in Patna. The alleged deals date back to the time when Lalu Prasad was railway minister. The CBI had booked Lalu, his family members and others in 2017 for alleged ill-gotten gains earned by tweaking the IRCTC hotels’ tender terms. Building on the CBI case, the ED later filed a chargesheet in the matter. According to the CBI, Lalu colluded with the hotel owners through IRCTC officials and owners of a front company belonging to his family.
