New Delhi, 21st May 2022:  On Saturday, Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court convicted the former Haryana Chief Minister and Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) supremo Om Prakash Chautala in the disproportionate assets case. The sentence is to be debated in the court on May 26.
According to the information, Om Prakash Chautala remained present in the courtroom during this hearing held on Saturday. Earlier on May 19, the Rouse Avenue Court had reserved its verdict in the case of possessing disproportionate assets.
In this case, the CBI had filed a chargesheet against Chautala on March 26, 2010 and held him responsible for amassing assets worth Rs 6.09 crore, allegedly disproportionate to his legitimate income, between 1993 and 2006.
However, the Chautala family has always been calling these allegations politically motivated.
In the year 2019, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had attached properties worth 3 crore 68 lakhs of former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala. These properties included flats, plots and land owned by Om Prakash Chautala. The attached properties are located in New Delhi, Panchkula and Sirsa.
This action was taken in connection with the FIR registered under the Money Laundering Act in a case of disproportionate assets.
