Haryana News: Former Haryana CM OP Chautala convicted in disproportionate assets case

Publish Date: 21 May, 2022 |

In the disproportionate assets case, a special judge's court at Rouse Avenue convicted former Haryana chief minister and Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) supremo Om Prakash Chautala. On May 26, Special Judge Vikas Dhal will deliver the verdict in the case.

CBI filed a charge sheet in 2010

Om Prakash Chautala was found guilty in the case by Special Judge Vikas Dhal of the MP MLA Court. Om Prakash Chautala was also present in court at the time. Both parties in the dispute had already presented their cases before the court on April 29. On March 26, 2010, the Central Investigation Agency (CBI), which is investigating the matter, submitted a chargesheet against Chautala.

Seven-time MLA holds over six crores Worth assets

The agency argued that between 1993 and 2006, the seven-time MLA accumulated assets worth Rs 6.09 crore, which was out of proportion to his known sources of income. The defence, on the other hand, rejected the case as a matter of political malice. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) attached his properties worth Rs 3.68 crore in 2019, including his flats and plots in New Delhi, Panchkula, and Sirsa, and filed a complaint under the Money Laundering Act.

Chautala convicted in another case within One Year

Om Prakash Chautala has received two sentences since the Supreme Court found him guilty of corruption in the JBT teacher recruitment scandal in 2013 and sentenced him to seven years in prison and ten years in prison for criminal conspiracy. Last July 2, Chautala was released from Tihar Jail after serving his sentence.
