Tejashwi threatened CBI officials
The CBI has alleged that Tejashwi had allegedly threatened CBI officials in a press conference.
The investigating agency said that Tejashwi Yadav’s bail should be canceled as he has violated the bail conditions.
In a press conference on August 25, Tejashwi Yadav had said, “Do CBI officers not have mothers and children, do they not have families, will they always be CBI officers, will they not retire, only this party is in power, what message do you want to convey? You should faithfully discharge the duty of a constitutional organization.”
The scam pertains to the IRCTC hotel maintenance contract case in which 12 people and two companies were accused by the CBI.
There were alleged irregularities in allotting contracts of two IRCTC hotels in Ranchi and Odisha’s Puri in 2006 to a private firm involving a bribe in the form of a three-acre commercial plot at a prime location in Bihar capital Patna.
