Officials said Yadav was first called for questioning on March 4, but he did not appear before the CBI officials, after which a fresh date was given for Saturday. They said the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader has been asked to appear for questioning on Saturday forenoon, but he has not yet reached the CBI headquarters here.
