NEW DELHI: Former railway minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad did not appear for questioning at the Enforcement Directorate headquarters here on Wednesday in connection with the probe into alleged money laundering in the railway land-for-jobs scam. Neither the agency nor Lalu gave any reason for the latter’s non-appearance.
Sources said another summons will be issued to Lalu soon asking him to record his statement before the agency as preparations are being made to finalise a chargesheet in the case.
His son and Bihar deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav, too, had not appeared before the agency on December 22 when he was summoned in the same case.
The ED has issued its third summons to Tejashwi, who has now been asked to appear on January 5, two days after Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has been summoned at the agency’s headquarters related to the liquor scam probe.
Tejashwi was questioned in April in the land-for-jobs scam case. This was after he and his sisters, besides Lalu and mother Rabri Devi, were questioned by the CBI in a related case.
