RJD leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav on Friday appeared before the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in Delhi for questioning in connection with alleged corruption in awarding the maintenance contract for two IRCTC hotels to a private firm.

On Thursday, Lalu Prasad Yadav had appeared before the agency which grilled him for seven hours. During the seven-hour-long questioning session, the team asked him mostly about award of the contract, land deals of the company now owned by his son.

The case pertains to allegations that Lalu Prasad Yadav, as railway minister, handed over the maintenance of two hotels run by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation, a subsidiary of the Indian Railways, in Ranchi and Puri to Sujata Hotel, a company owned by Vinay and Vijay Kochhar, in return for a prime plot of three acres in Patna through a benami company.

The FIR alleged that the RJD leader abused his official position for extending undue favours to the Kochhars and acquired a piece of "high value premium land" through the benami firm Delight Marketing Company.

The CBI registered the case against Lalu Prasad Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, son Tejashwi, and Sarla Gupta, wife of Prem Chand Gupta, a former Union minister.

Others named as accused in the FIR include Vijay and Vinay Kochhar, both directors of Sujata Hotels and owner of Chanakya Hotel, Delight Marketing Company, now known as Lara Projects, and then IRCTC managing director P K Goel.
