The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday conducted raids at the residence of former Bihar Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Yadav’s wife Rabri Devi in Patna.

The raids were conducted in connection with the railway hotel tender case. The CBI sleuths also interrogated Rabri’s son and former Bihar deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav, one of the accused in the alleged corruption case.

Earlier in July 2017, the investigative agency had registered a case against Lalu Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, son Tejashwi and others under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.

They were accused of irregularities in awarding the tender for development, maintenance and operation of the BNR hotels in Ranchi and Puri during Lalu’s tenure as Union Railway Minister from 2004 to 2009.
