Bihar politician Lalu Yadav was summoned to the CBI headquarters in Delhi on Thursday for questioning in connection with a corruption case.

The CBI has accused Lalu Prasad Yadav of having "rigged and manipulated the tender process” while awarding contracts to two IRCTC hotels - BNR Puri and BNR Ranchi-  to a private firm Sujata Hotels, when he was Railways minister in 2006.

The CBI, in its FIR alleged that in return, the directors of Sujata Hotels transferred three acres of “high-value premium land” to a shell company, Delight, which had links to Lalu’s family.

The corruption charges against Lalu, his wife Rabri and son Tejashwi were filed in July this year.

Mr Yadav's son Tejashwi is to be questioned tomorrow.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Mr Yadav is facing trial in several fodder scam cases. He has been convicted in one of the cases, after which he has been banned from contesting elections or holding public office for years.
