His first summons was issued on February 4, but he failed to appear before the CBI investigators, therefore a new date was set for Saturday, according to the officials quoted by the news agency PTI.
This comes a day after the ED conducted raids at multiple locations in Bihar and Delhi on Friday. In connection with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) scam, searches are being undertaken at 15 locations across three states. The home of RJD politician and Lalu Prasad Yadav’s aide Abu Dojana in Patna, Bihar, is also the target of raids.
