New Delhi :  

The deputy CM of Bihar Tejashwi Yadav on Wednesday clarified on the reports of his guards manhandling mediapersons outside Bihar Secretariat. Tejashwi said that there were moments when around ten mikes were about to hit his nose during the incident.

“Couple of media persons were putting mike behind me and brushed my ears and head also. There were moments when around ten mikes were about to hit my nose, I saved myself and duty personnel were protecting it while being on duty,” said Tejashwi.

Tejashwi said that he understands how difficult are the jobs of mediapersons especially cameraman. He said that they were competing with each other to get his statement.

On Wednesday, a mediaperson belonging to news agency ANI was among others who were manhandled by security personnel of Tejashwi Yadav at Bihar Secretariat on Wednesday.

Earlier on Friday, the CBI registered a corruption case against Lalu Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, son Tejaswi Yadav; former Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) Managing Director P.K. Goyal; and the wife of Lalu's confidante Prem Chand Gupta, Sujata on allegations of awarding the tender for development, maintenance and operation of hotels in Ranchi and Puri in 2006.

The CBI later questioned Rabri Devi and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav.
