The Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday morning conducted raids in at least 15 locations in Patna and other places, including Delhi, in connection with a case against RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav.

Reports said a new corruption case had been registered against Lalu over alleged irregularities in recruitment procedures during his tenure as Railways minister. ANI reported the case was related to a 'land for Railways job' scam.

The home of Misa Bharti, Lalu's daughter and a Rajya Sabha MP, is being searched. Reports said she has been named in the FIR.

Earlier this year, Lalu had been convicted in a fifth case related to the Fodder Scam. In April, Lalu had received bail in that case. The Fodder Scam relates to Lalu's time as chief minister of Bihar.
