Tejashwi threatened CBI officials
CBI has alleged that Tejashwi had allegedly threatened CBI officials during a press conference.
The investigating agency said Tejashwi Yadav’s bail should be revoked as he has violated bail conditions.
In a press conference on August 25, Tejashwi Yadav had said, “Don’t CBI officers have mothers and children, don’t they have families, are they always CBI officers, don’t they retire, only this party is in power, what message do you want to convey? You must faithfully fulfills the duty of a constitutional organization.”
The scam is related to the IRCTC hotel maintenance contract case in which the CBI indicted 12 individuals and two companies.
Irregularities were suspected in the 2006 awarding of contracts for two IRCTC hotels in Ranchi and Odisha’s Puri to a private company, which included a bribe in the form of a three-acre commercial plot in a prime location in Bihar’s capital, Patna.
