The Delhi Patiala house court on Wednesday adjourned the CBI case against RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in IRCTC scam for December 20. Lalu Yadav will appear again on December 20 through video conferencing. The court also directed CBI to make all arrangements of video conferencing.
Special judge Arun Bharadwaj passed the directions after he was told that the accused could not appear before the court, as per earlier direction, owing to his ill health.
The court directed the CBI and ED to ensure Lalu’s presence from video conference from the hospital, if he is still lodged there, or from jail.
The ED, meanwhile, opposed the bail application of Prasad’s wife Rabri Devi, son Tejaswi Yadav and others on the grounds that they were influential persons who could hamper the probe if granted the relief.
