Rabri Devi, Son Tejashwi Yadav Questioned By Income Tax In Assets Case

Former Bihar Deputy CM and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav

Two days after organising a massive rally, RJD chief Lalu Prasad's family members on Tuesday were questioned by Income Tax (I-T) department officials in Patna in connection with the benami property cases against them.

Sources said former Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav was called at 10.30 am for his questioning. Mr Yadav and Ms Rabri were quizzed on the basis of questionnaire specially prepared for them on the basis of findings during the investigation. Tejaswi left the premises at 6.10 pm while Rabri Devi left with Misa Bharti at 6.40 pm. She and her husband Shailesh Kumar had already been interrogated several times by Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax department in connection with disproportionate assets.

Hundreds of RJD workers gathered outside the Income Tax department offices at Patna's IT Golambar when Rabri, Tejaswi and Misa were present inside. Despite best efforts to seek their comments, both the leaders remained tight lipped. Earlier, in June, the I-T Department had filed a case against the family members of Lalu.

With the news of the questioning of the Prasad family coming out, a large number of RJD supporters and common people gathered at the I-T office in the heart of the town.

The IT department had earlier attached farm houses, land and buildings in Delhi and Patna, including plots in the Bihar capital where a mall was to be built in this case.

"Lalu Prasad's family does not believe in politics but in amassing wealth so they're facing an Income Tax probe", said JD (U) principal general secretary K C Tyagi. Sources said that these plots were transferred in lieu of contracts awarded to businessmen and hoteliers when Lalu Yadav was railway minister in 2005.
