New Delhi: Former chief minister of Haryana, Om Prakash Chautala, was convicted by ‘The Rouse Avenue Court’ in Delhi amidst an amassing assets case on Saturday.
The court is set to hear arguments on the quantum of punishment to be given on May 26.
Case against Chautala
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a chargesheet against OP Chautala on March 26, 2010 for accumulating assets worth Rs 6.09 crore between 1993 and 2006, which is far-far bigger than the legitimate income.
In January 2021, a Delhi court framed money laundering charges against OP Chautala in connection with the disproportionate assets case.
OP Chautala and his son Ajay were imprisoned for ten years. The father-son duo were found guilty regarding corruption in a teacher recruitment scam in 2013. OP Chautala, who is now 87 years old, was released from jail in July 2021.
