New Delhi: A Delhi court will on Tuesday pronounce its order on sentence against former Haryana Chief Minister O P Chautala, his son Ajay Chautala and 53 others guilty of illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic trained (JBT) teachers in the state in the year 2000.
Many supporters and workers of Chautala's Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) gathered outside the court on Tuesday morning and were accused of trying to break through the police barricade outside the court. The police retaliated with a lathicharge.
Special CBI Judge Vinod Kumar on Monday concluded hearing the arguments on the quantum of sentence.
Meanwhile, 78-year-old Om Prakash Chautala, the chief of Indian National Lok Dal who was held as the "main conspirator" by the court, has urged that he be allowed two assistants in G B Pant Hospital, where he is currently admitted following complaints of chest pain.
The court has asked the Superintendent of Tihar Jail to inform it whether Chautala was provided any such assistance while his stay in jail post-conviction.
The court had on January 16 held Om Prakash Chautala, Ajay Chautala and 53 others guilty of illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic trained (JBT) teachers in the state in the year 2000.
They have all been held guilty of cheating, forgery, using fake documents as genuine, conspiracy under the IPC and for abusing their official position under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
