New Delhi, Feb. 29 (ANI): A Delhi Court on Monday sentenced former union minister P K Thungon to three-and-a-half year jail term in a scam relating to allotment of government shops during 1993-94.

Thungon, who is already in jail over a graft case, was on Wednesday convicted by the Tis Hazari Court in the national capital.

Special CBI Judge Sanjeev Aggarwal found Thungon guilty of offences under Section 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC along with Sections 13d (iii) and other provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act.

Thungon was, in July 2015, awarded a four-and-a-half year jail term in a 1998 graft case relating to misappropriation of central funds.

Thungan, along with three other accused, was involved in misappropriating money meant for an irrigation project in Nagaland. (ANI)
