New Delhi [India], Apr. 20 (ANI): The special CBI court granted more time to the CBI for the procurement of sanctions against accused of IRCTC hotel tender scam, including former Railway minister Lalu Yadav, his wife Rabri Devi and son Tejaswi Yadav and others.

The CBI has to file all the related documents in the case till May 9.

Earlier this week, the probe agency had filed a charge sheet against Lalu, Rabri and 14 others as part of an investigation in the case.
