New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday filed a charge sheet in the ‘Land for job’ scam in Rouse Avenue court, which includes the name of Bihar’s former Chief Minister Rabri Devi, Misa Bharti, Hima Yadav and others.

The Rouse Avenue court has directed ED to also file an e-copy of the charge sheet and documents on Tuesday itself.

The court listed the matter for cognizance on January 16, 2024.

ED is also named Hridyanand Chaudhary, along with Amit Katyal, who is allegedly linked to Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad and his son Tejashwi Yadav.

He was apprehended by the ED in connection with a money laundering probe in the land-for-jobs scam.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are probing former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, his family and many others in the land-for-jobs case.

The alleged scam happened when Lalu Prasad was the Union railway minister in the UPA-1 cabinet.

Yadav is accused of giving jobs to Group-D positions in various Indian Railways zones between 2004-2009 in lieu of plots of land from the candidates or their relatives either as gifts or at cheap rates.

The probe had started two years ago but the case was registered last year.
