CBI raids a mall in Gurugram; Tejashwi Yadav denies ownership

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raided a mall, Urban Cubes Mall, in Gurugram today. It was said to be owned by Bihar’s deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav though the latter has denied any connection. 

The CBI also conducted raids on many places including Whiteland Corporation Private Limited which, as per the ABP News, constructed the Urban Cubes Mall. 

This mall is situated in Sector 71 and the CBI raid is in connection with the land-for-job scam in Bihar.

The investigative agency is conducting raids at various sites related to the RJD leader as it is probing an alleged scam that dates back to Lalu Yadav’s time as the UPA-I government’s minister of railways. Raids are currently taking place at the homes of RJD MP Ashfaque Karim, Rajya Sabha MP Faiyaz Ahmad, RJD MLC Sunil Singh, EX MLC Subodh Rai, and Former RJD MLA Abu Dojana. 

The agency is simultaneously raiding 25 locations.

On May 18, 2022, CBI filed a case against Lalu Prasad Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi, and his daughters Misa Bharti and Hema Yadav. The CBI also named 12 others in this case who were given jobs in the railway zones of Mumbai, Jabalpur, Kolkata, Jaipur, and Hajipur.

Lalu Prasad’s family paid the sellers in cash for lands measuring 1,05,292 square feet in Patna. These lands allegedly belong to job seekers’ families and were transferred or purchased in exchange for group-D jobs on the railways. According to the FIR, the people were appointed based on forged documents without any advertisement or public notice.
