New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday moved a Delhi court against Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav in the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) scam case. The CBI sought cancellation of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader’s bail in the case.

The CBI filed an application in the bench of Special Judge Geetanjali Goel of the Rouse Avenue Court seeking cancellation of the bail of the Bihar Deputy CM accused in the IRCTC scam case.

According to ANI inputs, Special Judge Geetanjali Goel has issued a notice to Tejashwi Yadav on the CBI petition seeking his response on the matter.

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.
