Patna: Bulldozers knock down 70 houses in Rajiv Nagar, clash between police and public

In Rajiv Nagar, 70 houses were demolished by bulldozers. The local people clashed with the police administration due to the order of demolishing 70 illegal houses.

According to the reports, when police and anti-riot force started moving bulldozers on the houses, the residents and the local people also stood up with bricks and stones in their hands.

The reason for the displeasure of the local people is that the CO and government employees of the area took no action when the houses were being built and the area was being settled.

One of the locals said, “when the houses are already built, then why the bulldozer is being run by the administration to remove them.”

It has been clearly said by the Minister of Revenue and Land Reform, Ramsurat Rai that the government is not in a mood to be soft on the encroachers. So, on June 3, the administration reached Rajiv Nagar with about one and a half dozen JCB machines to demolish the illegal constructions in Rajiv Nagar of Patna (Bihar).

The local people were seen clashing with the administration to save the shelter. They also attacked the police and the anti-riot force with bricks and stones.

During this, the condition of the people, whose houses were broken, was deteriorated. People who had built houses with hard-earned money were seen getting helpless.

A CBI court on Wednesday granted bail to former Bihar chief ministers Lalu Yadav, wife Rabri Devi and their daughter Misa Bharti in the purported land for jobs scam case. The next hearing in the case is set for March 29.

Lalu Yadav arrived in a wheelchair for his first court appearance after a kidney transplant in Singapore three months ago.

Former Bihar chief ministers, Lalu Yadav and Rabri Devi and their children, including their youngest son and current Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav are accused of receiving land parcels in exchange for jobs during Lalu Yadav’s stint as Railway Minister from 2004 to 2009.

In its chargesheet, the Central Bureau of investigation has claimed that Lalu made “irregular appointments” in violation of rules in the Railways and in exchange those employed by the former chief minister sold land to the Yadav family at dirt cheap rates.

The Yadavs have been charged with criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery and corruption. According to a statement by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), the current market value of the land of the Yadav family’s allegedly ill-gotten land is approximated at Rs 200 crore.

Last week, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) conducted searches at Delhi homes of Tejashwi Yadav and his sisters in connection with the alleged land for jobs scam, in which the CBI has named their parents and former Bihar chief ministers, Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi as prime accused.

The CBI chargesheet has named Lalu Prasad Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi and 14 others in the purported case which allegedly involves people being given employment in the railways in exchange for land parcels parcels gifted or sold at cheap rates to the Yadav family and its associates.

The accused have been charged of criminal conspiracy and provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act, and were summoned today. The ED, which probes financial crimes, has filed its case stemming from the same CBI complaint, under the criminal sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

On March 7, Lalu Yadav, a former railway minister was questioned by the CBI, day after his wife and former Bihar CM Rabri Devi was grilled by the probe agency in the same case.

The CBI case, which names the Yadav couple and their daughters Misa and Hema, among others, is based on allegations that Yadav and his family members bought land at a discount in exchange for jobs while he served as Union Railway Minister from 2004 to 2009.

Meanwhile, ‘Thenga mila hai’, said Tejashwi Yadav on Monday as he scoffed at the Enforcement Directorate’s claim of seizing Rs 600 crore during last week’s raids at the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader’s and his sisters’ residential homes in Delhi.

RJD leader Sunil Rai kidnapped in Bihar

Police have rescued Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Sunil Rai from his abductors within 24 hours of his kidnapping and arrested two suspects in connection with his abduction.

A senior official of the Bihar Police said that Rai, who was abducted in Chhapra district of Bihar on Tuesday, has been rescued and the vehicle used in the RJD leader’s kidnapping has also been seized, adding that two people have been arrested in this regard.

The official said that a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered and other person involved in Rai’s abduction would be behind bars soon, adding that further investigation is underway.

On Tuesday, RJD leader Sunil Rai was abducted from his office in Bihar’s Chhapra in the wee hours of Tuesday.

An official statement issued by the Saran Police had said that a group of unidentified assailants abducted the 42-year-old Rai from outside his office near the market committee under Muffasil police station limits around 4:30 am on Tuesday.

They had said a special investigation team (SIT) was constituted to nab the abductors and rescue the politician.

The entire ordeal of Sunil Rai’s kidnapping which was caught on security camera footage shows the kidnappers, at least six in number, lying in wait outside Rai’s office in a white Scorpio SUV. As soon as Rai steps outside, the assailants grab hold of the politician and after a brief struggle by Rai, drag him into their vehicle and escape the scene. The victim’s mobile phone was recovered a short distance away from the scene.

The RJD leader’s father said his son had received a phone call and went to the party office on early Tuesday, while denying all claims of any personal enmity being the cause of his son’s kidnapping.

Police said that the motive behind Rai’s kidnapping is still being investigated as there was no ransom demand. Notably, Rai had rebelled against the RJD and contested as an independent candidate. Reportedly, he’s also associated with the land business.

Thenga mila hai: Tejashwi Yadav says ED found zilch in raid at Delhi home

‘Thenga mila hai’, said Bihar deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, Monday, as he scoffed at the Enforcement Directorate’s claim of seizing Rs 600 crore during last week’s raids at the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader’s and his sisters’ residential homes in Delhi

‘Thenga mila hai’, said Bihar deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, Monday, as he scoffed at the Enforcement Directorate’s claim of seizing Rs 600 crore during last week’s raids at the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader’s and his sisters’ residential homes in Delhi.

Tejashwi Yadav rubbished the ED’s claims and claimed that all the probe agency officials found at his Delhi home was a “nod from above.” The RJD leader was speaking to reporters upon returning from celebrating Holi with his father Lalu Prasad Yadav who recently had a kidney transplant surgery.

Repudiating the ED’s claim, Yadav said ‘Thenga mila hai’ (they found zilch), during raids conducted at his Delhi home in connection with the purported land for jobs scam.

The Bihar deputy CM alleged that his sisters and their in-laws were forced to take off jewelry they were wearing and these were photographed and shown as “recovery” by ED officials, adding that his sisters are not involved in politics and got married after Lalu Prasad’s tenure as Railway Minister had ended.

Yadav accused the ruling BJP of targeting his family by “misusing” central agencies against them.

Yadav said the “witch hunt” started in 2017 when “these agencies spoke of Rs 8,000 crore”. The RJD leader was referring to the land for hotels scam, adding “nothing came of that case.

He said that after they were back in power and proved majority in assembly, raids were conducted on RJD leaders on the same day.

Recalling last week ED raid, Yadav said the search at his Delhi home was over in 30 minutes. He said his wife Rajshree Yadav—who is pregnant with the couple’s first child— offered tea to the ED officials who on being asked, said they can only leave after they get a call from above.

Yadav alleged that the raid was “clearly intended” to carry out a propaganda against him.

Last week, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) conducted searches at Delhi homes of Tejashwi Yadav and his sisters in connection with the alleged land for jobs scam, in which the CBI has named their parents and former Bihar chief ministers, Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi as prime accused.
