Railway hotel case: Delhi court grants bail to Rabri Devi, Tejashwi Yadav
New Delhi, Aug 31 (IBNS): In a big relief for the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi and party leader Tejashwi Yadav were granted bails in connection with the railway hotel case by the Patiala House court on Friday.
Both the accused were given bails on surety of Rs. 1 lakh each and a personal bond.
The case pertains to alleged irregularities in granting operational contract of two IRCTC hotels to a private company.
Former Bihar Chief Minister and RJD chief, Lalu Prasad, who is also an accused in the case, could not appear before the court as he is serving several years of jail term in connection with fodder scam cases.
Lalu is lodged in a jail in Ranchi.
The bail came as a relief for the RJD as Tejashwi is presently leading the party in absence of Lalu.
