IT dept raids Lalu Prasad Yadav's associates in Rs 1000cr benami deals

RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Tuesday said he is not afraid and will not bow before any one and fight "fascist forces" till his last breath, after the Income Tax Department conducted raids in connection with alleged "benami" property deals involving him and his family.

While raids are being conducted at a dozen locations, ten other official premises are being surveyed by the I-T department, they said. The report also said that searches are being conducted at the premises of the son of RJD MP PC Gupta and few other businessmen. "Lalu is not scared of the BJP-backed media and central agencies (state-owned parrots)", he said. He also demanded the Election Commission to take appropriate deed against her. On May 12, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had demanded an inquiry into the land deals related to Yadav's daughter Misa Bharti.

"The politics of Lalu Prasad has become politics of loot land worth crores of rupees was grabbed for a pittance", he said.

Nitish Kumar on Monday ruled out a probe into Sushil Kumar Modi's allegations over land deals in the name of Lalu Prasad and his famly members, saying it was the Centre's domain.

Modi said Lalu Prasad's eldest daughter, Misa Bharti, should reveal the source of funds with which she bought a farmhouse in Bijwasan area in New Delhi, alleging that the money actually belonged to Lalu, and was part of the Rs 1,000 crore fodder scam.
