In a disproportionate assets (DA) case, the Special CBI Court of Delhi sentenced former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala to four years in prison. The former chief minister was also fined Rs 50 lakh by the court.

On May 21, the court found him guilty in the case brought by the CBI in 2005. On March 26, 2010, the central agency submitted a charging sheet. Between 1993 and 2006, the CBI discovered that Chautala amassed assets worth Rs 6.09 crore, which was disproportionate to his legal income.

The accused amassed vast wealth and invested it across the country in the form of thousands of acres of land, multi-complexes, palatial residential houses, hotels, farmhouses, business agencies, petrol pumps, and other investments, in addition to investments in foreign countries, according to the FIR.

Special Judge Vikas Dhull further ordered the necessary authorities to seize four of his properties. Last week, Dhull found Chautala guilty, stating he failed to account for the disproportionality by failing to demonstrate his source of income or how he acquired assets during the check period.

In 2013, a CBI court found Chautala guilty and sentenced him to ten years in prison for his part in the teacher recruitment fraud. He was found guilty in the recruitment of more than 3,000 junior basic trained school instructors. He was sentenced to ten years in prison and was released last year.
