NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday carried out searches at 16 locations linked to former Railway Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) patriarch Lalu Prasad Yadav after it registered a fresh case for the alleged “land for job” scam.

A CBI official, wishing not to be named told The New Indian, “Multiple teams of CBI are carrying out searches 16 locations in Delhi, Bihar’s Patna and Gopalganj.”

He said that the agency has registered a fresh case against the former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad and others in the alleged land for job scam.

The CBI team in Patna also arrived at the premises of former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi, who is the wife of Lalu Prasad.

Lalu Prasad, who is currently in Delhi, has recently come out of jail after the Jharkhand High Court granted him bail in the Rs 139 crore Doranda Treasury scam case.

In February, a CBI special court had sentenced him to five years in prison in the case and put a fine of Rs 60 lakh.

The treasury scam case was the fifth fodder scam case in which Lalu Prasad was convicted.
