Patna: Unfazed by the Lalu camp's attempt to drag him to the court on charges of slander, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Kumar Modi, at a press conference in Patna on Tuesday, released more documents indicating the Lalu family acquiring properties under false names to the tune of over Rs. 50 crore.

The properties were acquired under the name of A K Infosystems Private Limited, a shell company created with the sole purpose of converting black money into white money, Modi said.

Waving what he called was irrefutable evidence of Yadav family's money-laundering scheme to buy properties from ill-gotten money, the BJP leader said that A K Infosystems bought 28.57 decimal of land in Panapur and 43.0 decimal of land in Chitkohra in 2007 for a price of Rs. 39 lakh.

"Is it merely a coincidence that the RJD chief's daughters Chanda and Ragini were the directors of the fake company while Yadav's wife and former Chief Minister Rabri Yadav and son and Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav were the major shareholders of the company," he asked.

Going down the list, the former Deputy Chief Minister said that the same people then bought land and a building in Salempur Dumra in 2010 for a price of Rs. 70 lakh from none other than Lalu Yadav's sons Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejaswi Yadav to give the transaction a legal touch.

"This plot and the two-storied building was 'gifted' to the two sons of Lalu by their maternal uncle Prabhunath Yadav in 2006. It is no secret that Prabhunath Yadav was a landless farmer so where did he get the money to purchase this land for Rs. 14 lakh? The scheme these people plotted allowed the land to remain with the family and black money got converted into white money. This is the game Lalu had been playing to amass properties," he said.
