HC notice to Delhi government on Chautala’s parole plea

New Delhi, Nov 18 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued notice to the city government on a plea by former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala seeking two months parole for medical treatment.

Chautala is serving a 10-year jail term in the 2000 illegal teacher recruitment scam in the state.

Justice Ashutosh Kumar sought response from the Delhi government by January 4 while hearing the plea of 82-year-old Chautala for treatment for his polio-affected legs.

A special Central Bureau of Investigation court here on January 22, 2013 had sentenced the Chautalas and eight others to 10 years in jail after finding them guilty of illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic trained teachers in 2000.

The high court had held the punishment given by the trial court. The Supreme Court on August 3 dismissed the plea of Chautala and his son Ajay Chautala, upholding their conviction and sentencing in the scam.

On September 8, Chautala had moved an application for grant of parole to the Tihar jail superintendent on medical grounds. On October 20, the Delhi government’s home department dismissed the parole plea.
