Abstract: We study the scalar leptoquark effects on the rare semileptonic decays of Λb baryon, governed by the quark level transition . We estimate the branching ratios, forward–backward asymmetries, lepton polarisation parameters and the lepton flavour non-universality effects in these decay channels. We find significant deviations from the corresponding standard model predictions in some of the observables due to leptoquark effects. We also investigate the lepton flavour violating decays , the branching ratios of which are found to be .
