The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notice to the CBI on former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala's aide Vidya Dhar's plea for bail and suspending the 10-year jail sentence handed down to him for irregular appointment of teachers in 2000.
Seeking a response from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Justice Mukta Gupta also called for the IAS official's medical records from Tihar Jail authority on his bail plea on medical grounds. The court posted the matter for April 4.
Dhar, Chautala's former officer on special duty, had moved the court seeking bail and suspension of the 10-year jail term awarded to him along with the former Haryana chief minister, his son Ajay Chautala and others.
The trial court had sentenced Dhar, the Chautalas and eight others to 10 years in jail; one person was sentenced to five years and 45 others were handed out four-year jail terms.
Chautala and the other accused were found guilty of illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic trained teachers in Haryana in 2000.
