The Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi convicted former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala in a disproportionate assets case on Saturday.
The court will hear arguments on the quantum of punishment to be given on May 26.
CASE AGAINST OP CHAUTALA
The Central Bureau of Investigation filed a chargesheet against OP Chautala on March 26, 2010 for allegedly amassing assets worth Rs 6.09 crore between 1993 and 2006, which is disproportionate to the legitimate income.
In January 2021, a Delhi court framed money laundering charges against OP Chautala in connection with the disproportionate assets case.
OP Chautala and his son Ajay were also sentenced to ten years' imprisonment after they were found guilty of corruption in a teacher recruitment scam in 2013. OP Chautala, now 87 years old, was released from jail in July 2021.
