His father and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has been asked to depose on December 27 in the case at the ED headquarters in Delhi. 

What is land-for-job scam? 

The alleged land-for-job scam pertains to the period when Lalu Prasad Yadav was the railway minister in the UPA-1 government. It has been alleged that from 2004 to 2009, several people were handed out Group "D" category jobs in various railway zones after they transferred land to the family members of then railway minister Prasad and a linked company named A K Infosystems Private Limited.
