Yadav has alleged that Raja Bhaiyya allegedly opened a bank account in his name on the basis of forged documents and signatures in 2009.

Raja Bhaiya’s driver Rohit Kumar Singh and his wife Monica,besides then manager of HDFC bank’s Aliganj branch Waliullah Sarvar Ali,have also been named in the complaint.

Yadav further alleged that the account was being operated by Raja Bhaiya and his aides since 2009.

The case has been registered under IPC sections 419,420,467,468 and 471 which include charges of forgery of valuable security and cheating by impersonation.

The police said Yadav had filed an application in a local court to get the FIR lodged. The court had sought a report from Aliganj police station regarding the matter while hearing the application on June 19. The police had to submit the report today.

Yadav,who was Raja Bhaiya’s PRO between 2004 and 2008,had earlier submitted a complaint to the CBI alleging that Raja Bhaiya was involved in foodgrain scam during his tenure as food and civil supply minister in the Mulayam Singh Yadav government between 2004 and 2007.
