Indian National Lok Dal President Om Prakash Chautala's supporters protested outside a Delhi court on Thursday as the leader arrived for hearing of arguments on his sentencing in a case related to the Junior Basic Trained (JBT) teachers recruitment scam.
A day after Chautala was convicted in the case, his supporters created chaos as he arrived in the court in a jail van.
His supporters, who were seen holding party flags, climbed on the jail van and stopped it, reports said.
Chautala´s supporters stood outside the court lock-up where the leader along with other accused were lodged.
Amid chaos, the supporters shouted slogans against the authorities as the police tried to disperse them from the spot.
During the hearing, the judge did not allow anyone else to enter the court room apart from all the accused, their counsel, prosecutors and court staff.
A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court here on Wednesday convicted former Haryana Chief MInister Chautala and his son Ajay Chautala in the JBT teachers recruitment scam.
