Prajapati's bail application has been turned down by the High Court twice.
The CBI team reached the former Minister's house in the morning and began the searches. The team is also interrogating his family members on matters related to unaccounted wealth.
It might be recalled that in January 2017, a woman had alleged that Prajapati, then a Minister, had called her and her daughter to his residence on the pretext of giving a mining contract and he and his men had raped the two.
