IT department orders confiscation of Rabri Devi and daughter Hema’s benami properties

The benami plots owned by Rabri Devi and daughter Hema Yadav were allegedly gifted to them by workers who were given government jobs by Lalu Yadav.

Yadav family appears to be embroiled in one controversy after the other. After the temporary reprieve the Yadavs secured in the IRCTC scam, the Income Tax department has ordered the confiscation of Benami properties of Lalu Prasad Yadav’s wife Rabri Devi and his fifth daughter Hema Yadav.

The Adjudicating Authority of Income Tax Department has reportedly ordered the seizure of Benami properties of Rabri Devi and Hema Yadav. The properties which are confiscated include 2 plots of land in Patna and 1 plot in the Danapur’s Sanguna adjoining Patna. The Dhanot plot is of 7.75 decimal and a plot in Sanguna is of 3.25 decimal. Both the plots were bought in the name of someone else.

As per the sources, both these plots were received as gifts to Rabri Devi and daughter Hema in 2008. The Dhanot plot is owned by Lalon Chowdhary who works in the Bihar Vidhan Sabha, while the flat in Saguna is registered under Narayan Chowdhury, who is a Railway employee. Both were employed by Lalu Prasad Yadav. It is also alleged that both of them, who live in rented houses gave their land as gifts to the Lalu family in exchange for the jobs. Rabri and Hema have failed to reveal the source of this land in the income tax investigation, after which it has now been seized.

Two days back, the court granted relief to the Yadav family after it agreed to grant bail to the accused in the IRCTC scam. The court had granted bail to Tejashwi, Lalu and Rabri Devi in the case. However, Lalu Prasad Yadav will continue to serve the jail sentence in connection to his conviction in the fodder scam.

The Income Tax department has already seized benami properties worth Rs 6900 crores till date, manifesting clearly Modi government’s no-tolerant policy towards Black money and corruption.
