Ranchi: The Janata Dal (U), an ally of the
BJP-led government in Jharkhand, on Tuesday demanded a CBI probe
into the seizure of Rs 2.15 crore on March 30 when the Rajya

party wants that there should be a CBI probe to find out if
the cash seized was linked to horse trading," JDU’s state unit
spokesman Pramod Mishra said here.

Yashwant Sinha asked the Election Commission of India to ask
the premier investigating agency or any other agency to
inquire into what happened from the time the election process
The ECI had on the same day recommended countermanding of
election to two seats for the Upper House from the state
