Rai gained notoriety for his alleged involvement in the Bihar Board inter topper scam of 2016, prompting the ED to seize his assets due to suspected disproportionate wealth.

However, recent developments indicate Rai gradually reclamed the confiscated properties, leading the ED to file a complaint and subsequently an FIR at the Bhagwanpur police station.

ED's Assistant Director, Rajeev Ranjan, initiated legal proceedings on November 24, culminating in the FIR registration on November 29. Reports from Kiratpur Rajarampur in Bhagwanpur suggest Rai's repossession of ED-seized buildings and alleged unauthorized construction aimed at establishing an intermediate school.

Rai's reported applications to the Bihar Board have raised concerns about the potential resurgence of deceptive practices linked to the infamous Inter Topper scam.
