Delhi govt opposes Chautala's parole plea in High Court

New Delhi
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government on Monday opposed in the Delhi High Court the parole plea of INLD leader Ajay Chautala, serving a 10-year jail term in teachers' recruitment scam case, alleging that he was"abusing" the process of law. Chautala has sought parole for medical treatment and for maintaining social ties. Delhi government told a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath that earlier also Chautala was admitted to a private hospital for around seven months in the name of treatment."I cannot say that he (Chautala) is hale and hearty but he does not require any immediate redressal (for his ailments). In an August 2013 medical report, it was said that a pacemaker was needed to be implanted but till date no such procedure has been carried out," Delhi government's senior standing counsel Rahul Mehra told the bench."This means that the patient is improving. Last time, he had gone to a private hospital and not a government hospital. He is abusing the system of law. He was out of jail for seven months in the name of treatment," he argued.
