ED attaches property worth 1.94 crore of Haryana’s former CM Om Prakash Chautala in disproportionate assets case

The ED earlier attached properties worth Rs 4.15 crore of Om Prakash Chautala, the former Haryana CM.

The Enforcement Directorate has attached a Rs 1.94 crore property of former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala in connection with disproportionate asset case. The property has been attached under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA).

The ED earlier attached properties worth Rs 4.15 crore of Om Prakash Chautala.

Chautala, who was convicted in the infamous teachers’ recruitment scam and is currently serving a 10-year jail term in Tihar jail, is being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and ED for disproportionate assets to a tune of Rs 6.09 crore acquired during the check period from May 24, 1993, to May 31, 2006.

The case against Chautala was initiated on the basis of an FIR registered by CBI against him and others for acquiring assets disproportionate to their known source of income.

CBI has filed a charge sheet against Om Prakash Chautala and his sons Abhay Chautala and Ajay Chautala under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.

The investigation further revealed that Om Prakash Chautala’s sons had also acquired assets disproportionate to their known source of income to the tune of Rs 119.69 crore and Rs 27.74 crore respectively.

As the investigation proceeded the ED revealed that Om Prakash Chautala, who last year, when out on two-week parole from the Tihar jail in Delhi, vowed to make BSP chief Mayawati the next PM, had acquired Immovable Properties at New Delhi, Panchkula and also constructed a residential house at Sirsa (Haryana).

“He had disclosed properties he acquired in the affidavit filed before returning officer in Haryana Vidhan Sabha Election 2005 and 2009 thereby projecting publicly the tainted properties as untainted,” the ED stated.
