This paper explores the motion of an infinitesimal body around the triangular equilibrium points in the framework of circular restricted three-body problem (CR3BP) with the postulation that the primaries are triaxial rigid bodies, radiating in nature and are also under the influence of Poynting–Robertson (P-R) drag. We study the linear stability of these triangular points and for the numerical application, the binary stars Kruger 60 (AB) and Archird have been considered. These triangular points are not only perceived to move towards the line joining the primaries in the direction of the bigger primary with increasing triaxiality, they are also unstable owing to the destabilizing influence of P-R drag.
