The land-for-jobs scam case concerns alleged appointments made in the railways in exchange for land parcels given to or purchased by Lalu Prasad's family between 2004 and 2009 when he served as the railways minister.
It was alleged in the FIR that some individuals, despite being Patna residents, were appointed as replacements in Group-D posts between 2004 and 2009 in various railway zones in Mumbai, Jabalpur, Kolkata, Jaipur, and Hajipur. In exchange, the individuals or their families allegedly transferred their lands into the names of Lalu Yadav's family and a business called AK Infosystems Private Limited, which was later acquired by the RJD supremo's family.
