As per reports, the case filed against them is related to the alleged irregularities in tenders allotted to a private company for the goal of development, maintenance, and operation of hotels at Ranchi and Puri.
CBI alleges that a patch of land in Patna, where a mall is being built now, was illegally transferred in Lalu's name as a favour in exchange of giving a land on 15-year lease to one Harsh Kochhar, an entrepreneur who ran two hotels in Puri and Ranchi.
Hitting out at Bihar CM, Singh stated that Nitish Kumar can not remain a mute spectator. Earlier also, Modi had demanded sacking of Lalu Prasad's minister sons - Tejashwi and Tej Pratap - from Bihar government after the Income Tax Department charged six family members of the RJD chief under anti-benami assets Act in connection with its probe into alleged land deals worth Rs 1,000 crore.
According to reports, the agency is conducting searches at multiple locations including Delhi, Patna, Puri and Gurgaon in relation with the case. Speaking to reporters, Singh said that the chief minister can longer remain a "mute spectator".
Mr Kocchar sold the two-acre plot in Patna to a company owned by the wife of an MP from Lalu's party named Prem Gupta. "We will fight legally and politically", Jha said. It still remains to be seen whether the meeting is being called to discuss the CBI raids at Lalu Prasad's residence. ANI accessed the copy of the FIR filed by the CBI, naming the former railway minister's family and other big names.
