Jailed former Haryana CM Chautala hospitalised

New Delhi, Aug 27 (IANS) Former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala, who is serving a jail term here, was admitted on Saturday to Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital after he complained of uneasiness.

Chautala, 81, was brought to the hospital in the morning; his condition is stable now, but he will remain hospitalised for at least four to five days, a hospital official told IANS.

The doctors have conducted a routine check-up of Chautala and taken his blood samples to be tested for dengue, chikungunya and viral fever, the official said.

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court here on January 22, 2013 had sentenced Chautala, his son Ajay, and eight others to 10 years in jail after finding them guilty of illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic trained teachers in 2000.

The high court had upheld the punishment given by the trial court, while the Supreme Court on August 3 dismissed the plea of Chautala and his son Ajay, upholding their conviction and sentencing in the scam.

Chautala belongs to Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) and served as Haryana’s chief minister more than once.
