Sadhu Yadav accused of land grabbing

Patna: Bihar legislator Sadhu Yadav and three others have been charged in a case of alleged land-grabbing in Patna, police said on Sunday.

The complaint against Yadav, brother-in-law of Railway Minister Lalu Prasad, was lodged by Bhuwaneswar Tiwari, a resident of Beur village. The other three accused, including one of Yadav's relatives, were arrested Saturday, a police official said.

Yadav is a Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP from Gopalgunj parliamentary constituency.

LANDING IN TROUBLE: The complaint against Yadav was lodged by a resident of Beur village in Bihar.

Yadav is also accused of accepting a transfer of Rs 6,00,000 into his account from Santosh Jha, the alleged kingpin of the flood relief scandal in Bihar.

He maintains the money was received after the sale of a car that he had bought from a Delhi businessman Sumit Jenna. He was granted bail by the Patna High Court last month.
