Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers on Wednesday clashed outside BJP office in Patna, a day after the Income Tax Department conducted raids in connection with an alleged ‘benami’ property case involving RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and others.

The IT department on Tuesday conducted raids and surveys on at least 22 locations in Delhi and adjoining areas. RJD workers were protesting against senior Bihar BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi when the clash occurred.Sushil Kumar Modi has demanded that the Nitish Kumar government order a probe into the allegations of “shady land deals” against RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and his family members.

“The central agencies have acted on the alleged benami properties that were in the public domain for the past 40 days. Now, it is the turn of the Nitsih Kumar government to act against his ally, RJD leader Lalu Prasad and his two minister sons, who have made land purchases in Bihar,” he told reporters.
