Bihar Govt handed over soil scam probe to VB involving Lalu & Tej Pratap


Patna: The Bihar government has decided to hand over the investigation of soil scam case, allegedly involving Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad and his son Tej Pratap Yadav, to the Vigilance Bureau (VB).

The scam relates to the alleged purchase of soil worth more than Rs 90 lakh by Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park in Patna from a firm associated with Yadav without floating any tender. Then purchase was made during Yadav’s tenure as minister of the forest and environment department, which controlled the biological park. The decision to hand over the probe to the VB comes a week after the Patna high court directed the Bihar government to file an action taken report in the soil scam case within six weeks.
