New Delhi, Dec 20 (IBNS): A Delhi court on Thursday granted an interim bail to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad in the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) hotel scam case till Jan 19, media reports said.

Special judge Arun Bharadwaj granted the bail after Lalu, who is now serving a jail term in connection with several fodder scam cases, was brought before the court through video conference from a Ranchi jail.

Lalu's wife and son, Rabri Devi and Tejashwi Yadav, who are the other accused in the alleged railway scam, were earlier granted interim bail till Jan 19.

The CBI had registered an FIR on July 7 against Lalu Prasad, his wife Rabri Devi, their son Tejashwi Yadav and five others, which include a former IRCTC managing director, in a case of alleged corruption linked to a grant of tenders for the maintenance of BNR hotels to Sujata Hotels.

According to reports, the investigative agency alleged in the FIR that Lalu Prasad and family received a plot of land in Patna in return for awarding tenders to the company run by two businessmen Vijay Kochhar and Vinay Kochhar.
