Patna: Another photograph has surfaced of RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s sons — Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav and Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav — with an absconding accused in the murder of journalist Rajdeo Ranjan.
The photograph of Lalu’s younger son Tejaswi and elder son Tej Pratap with accused Jawed Bhath on Monday went viral on the social media.
A CBI team probing the murder of the journalist in Siwan district had visited Bhath’s house in search of him last week.
Bhath and another accused in the case Jimmi have been absconding. Under increasing police pressure, two accused Mohammad Kaif and Sonu had surrendered in court.
Earlier, a photograph of Kaif with Tej Pratap Yadav surfaced and went viral on the social media.
Tej Pratap denied the charge and feigned ignorance about the accused Kaif.
Earlier this month, Kaif was seen in photographs and videos standing along side criminal-turned-politician and former RJD MP Mohammad Shahabuddin after the latter’s release from Bhagalpur jail on September 10.
After this, the Supreme Court issued notice to Tej Pratap Yadav and Shahabuddin as to why an FIR cannot be filed against them for allegedly sheltering an accused in Ranjan’s murder.
The apex court responded to a petition filed by the journalist’s widow Asha Ranjan who sought filing of an FIR against Jawed and Jimmi, who were allegedly seen in the company of Kaif.
Three days ago, Tej Pratap demanded that similar notices should have been issued against BJP leaders whose photographs had appeared with Ranjan murder suspect Kaif and other criminals and tainted persons.
