New Delhi, Feb 26 IBNS | 5 months ago

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday said it is likely to interrogate Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president Ram Vilas Paswan in connection with a recruitment scam at the Bokaro Steel Plant.


According to CBI sources, during his tenure as Steel Minister five years ago, he recommended candidates for the Bokaro Plant.

"In January, the CBI raided some 30 places and registered two cases related to alleged irregularities in appointments in the middle and junior management level in the public sector company," reported NDTV.

"The Bokaro steel plant was also accused of a conspiracy by not advertising the appointments, accepting applications even after the deadline and thus favouring some candidates," said the news channel.
