New Delhi: CBI has today filed a supplementary chargesheet in Land for Job Scam case pertaining to the tenure of then Union Rail Minister Lalu Prasad against three persons, including then Special Officer to Minister of Railways Bhola Yadav and two candidates, namely Ashok Kumar and Babita Kumari.

As per the CBI supplementary charge-sheet, after becoming Union Rail Minister with intent to acquire the land parcels situated at the places where his family was already owning land parcels or the places that were already connected to him, he entered into an alleged criminal conspiracy with his associates and family members and acquired land of various land owners, in which he had an interest, by offering / providing group D employment in Railways.

To implement the plan, he, with the help of his then-special officer, devised an indirect way wherein the candidates were engaged first as substitutes and subsequently regularized. The then Railway Minister also entered into a conspiracy with officers of Central Railways and others, collected applications and documents of such candidates through his associates, and then sent those to Central Railway to process and provide jobs in Railways.

Earlier, CBI had filed charge-sheets in October 2022 and July 2023, respectively, in respect of engagements of other candidates in Central Railway, Mumbai and West Central Railway.

Investigation in respect of similar engagements made in other zones of Indian Railways is continuing.

The public is reminded that the above findings are based on the investigation done by CBI and evidence collected by it. Under the Indian Law, accused are presumed to be innocent till their guilt is finally established after a fair trial.
