In a case involving the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) fraud, Tejashwi Yadav, the deputy chief minister of Bihar, was given bail. On Tuesday, a Delhi court declined to revoke that parole, stating that it had not found any particular reason to do so.

In response to the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) claim that Yadav had "blatantly misused the liberty accorded to him," special judge Geetanjali Goel declined to revoke the bail.

Yadav allegedly tried to obstruct the investigation's findings and the ensuing trial at a recent news conference, according to the agency. It also stated that the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader had threatened witnesses as well as CBI agents and their families directly.

Yadav was also charged with trying to "portray the CBI in a poor light and under the sway of political parties" by insinuating that he was a political party's "Jamai" (son-in-law).

Yadav, however, asserted that he did not transgress any terms of the bail he was given in 2018.
