The Supreme Court on Thursday closed the proceedings against Tej Pratap Yadav, the elder son of the RJD chief, Lalu Prasad Yadav, in a murder case.
The top court had directed the CBI to probe Tej Pratap after photographs and videos that showing him along with two absconding accused, Mohd Kaif and Javed, who are presently in judicial custody in the Rajdeo Ranjan murder case.
A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud considered the submission of Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi that CBI had not found any incriminating material against the RJD leader, reported PTI.
Tej Pratap, a former health minister of Bihar, has not commented on the Supreme Court order. The top court had last year also sought the response of former RJD MP Mds Shahabuddin, Bihar’s health minister and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad’s son Tej Pratap Yadav and the Bihar government on a petition by Ranjan’s wife, who has also sought transfer of the case from Siwan in Bihar to Delhi.
The RJD chief’s son was seen in a photograph published in newspapers with one of the two sharp shooters of alleged gangster-turned-politician Shahabuddin.
