HC seeks AAP govt’s reply on OP Chautala parole plea
The Delhi High Court on Wednesday sought the AAP government’s reply on a plea by ex-Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala, serving a 10-year jail term in teachers’ recruitment scam case, seeking two days’ parole to attend his grandson and MP Dushyant Chautala’s marriage function.
Justice A K Chawla asked the Delhi government to file the status report before December 30 on the plea of Chautala whose appeal against the high court verdict was dismissed by the Supreme Court on August 3 last year. The INLD leader has sought permission to attend his grandson’s ‘roka’ ceremony and the ‘ring’ ceremony to be held on January 2 and January 3 next year.
Senior advocate Sudhir Nandrajog and advocate Amit Sahni, appearing for Chautala, also sought setting aside of the Delhi government’s decision of December 14 this year by which his plea for six months parole on medical ground was dismissed.
