Arrest Warrant Issued Against Former Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav in Gwalior Court

In a significant development, an arrest warrant has been issued against former Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav. The order was given by the MP-MLA court in Gwalior, marking a critical turn in the ongoing legal proceedings against Yadav.

Previously, on January 30, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had conducted a rigorous 10-hour interrogation session with Lalu Prasad. The focus of the inquiry was the alleged ‘Land for Job’ scam within the Railways, where Yadav is suspected of involvement in money laundering activities. This was Yadav’s first appearance before the investigating agency.

Lalu Prasad, accompanied by his daughter Misa Bharti, arrived at the ED office in Patna around 11 AM. However, Bharti was not allowed inside. During the session, the ED posed 70 questions to Yadav, who left the office around 9 PM. Despite the lengthy interrogation, Yadav has continued to declare his innocence, distancing himself from the allegations.

The investigating officer recorded Yadav’s statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The session with the ED was extensive, with Yadav being asked about various aspects of the alleged corruption and money laundering case. It is reported that Yadav took approximately one and a half to two minutes to answer each question.
