PTI | January 22, 2013



Thousands of supporters of INLD Chief Om Prakash Chautala on Tuesday clashed with police which used batons and teargas to control them outside a court here which is set to pronounce its sentence against the former Haryana Chief Minister and his son Ajay Chautala in the junior basic trained (JBT) teachers scam.

The supporters had gathered outside the complex in the early hours and clashed with police after it prevented them from entering the court complex. The police used batons and teargas to control the supporters.

Security has been tightened around the complex and entry has been restricted in the court. The court work was also affected and lawyers faced problems getting in.

On January 16, the court had held 78-year-old Om Prakash Chautala, his son Ajay Chautala and 53 others guilty of illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic trained (JBT) teachers in the state in 2000.

They have all been held guilty of cheating, forgery, using fake documents as genuine, conspiracy under the IPC and for abusing their official position under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
