Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad, on Saturday, demanded a CBI probe into the fraudulent transfer of public funds, amounting allegedly to over Rs 350 crore, by the last count, into the account of an NGO, Srijan Sahayog Mahila Vikas Samiti in Bhagalpur district of south eastern Bihar.Claiming the involvement of top politicians, businessmen and bureaucrats in the scam, Prasad told reporters only an independent probe by the premier investigating agency would only unravel the magnitude of the scam."This scam is worth Rs 1,000 crore and funds withdrawn clandestinely from government accounts by Srijan since 2005 was used in real estate, businesses and for money laundering". He should lodge an FIR against Modi and have him arrested. On August 9, a team headed by Inspector-General (IG) (EOU) Jitendra Singh Gangwar flew to Bhagalpur via a special aircraft after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar raised the issue at a function that was organized to mark the "Earth Day".
Sushil Kumar Modi denied having anything to do with the scam. "Why would we do so if we were involved in it?" said Sushil Modi.

Holding deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi "directly responsible" for the scam, Yadav demanded his immediate resignation, saying the BJP leader's continuation in the cabinet could influence the probe. The incident has made the state government take the bank accounts across the state under its discretion, Sushil Modi said.
"Now it has crossed Rs 500 crore and it may increase in coming days with the probe still on", an official of the SIT said.
"He must step down and be sent to jail", said Yadav, adding that he may approach the high court seeking a CBI probe if the Centre does not order it. The initial probe by the SIT and Bhagalpur police revealed that Rs270 crore for land acquisition, Rs17.70 crore for urban development, Rs15 crore of district nazarat besides several crores on other heads kept in the district administration bank accounts were diverted to Srijan for private use, including funding some persons' businesses and land deals in collusion with the government and bank officials.
