His son and former deputy chief minister of Bihar Tejashwi is scheduled to be questioned tomorrow.

Both are accused of awarding the maintenance contract for two IRCTC hotels to a private firm after receiving bribe of three acre land plots in Patna.

The fresh case of corruption was registered against them in July last.

The same month, the CBI conducted a raid at the residence of Prasad in connection with the scam which ultimately led to the break-up in the ruling Grand Alliance and formation of a NDA government led by same Nitish Kumar.

However, the RJD leaders alleged the case was only a excuse for Nitish Kumar to walk out of the Grand Alliance and return to the BJP camp.
