Haryana: ED seals OP Chautala's farmhouse in Sirsa


Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday raided and sealed the farmhouse of former Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala in Teja Khera, Sirsa.

Chautala and his son Ajay Singh Chautala are serving a jail term in a teachers' recruitment scam case.

On January 22, 2013, a trial court had sentenced 55 accused in the teachers' recruitment scam case. Among those convicted were 82-year-old Chautala's then political adviser Sher Singh Badshami, the then Officer on Special Duty (OSD) Vidya Dhar, IAS, and then Primary Education Director Sanjiv Kumar, besides 50 others.

A total of 55 persons were convicted under the JBT scam for illegally recruiting 3,206 teachers in Haryana in 2000.

The father-son duo, including two IAS officers, were among 55 persons convicted on January 16, 2013, by the trial court.
