Just hours after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) pledged to form coalition government with Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) chief Dushyant Chautala, his father has been granted furlough of two weeks from Tihar Jail. Sources have learnt that Ajay Chautala will be released by today evening or tomorrow (Sunday) from Tihar.
Sources in Tihar Jail said that, “A well behaved prisoner is allowed for furlough of 49 days in one year legally. Ajay Chautala has claimed 14 days from his remaining days of furlough. He will be unescorted outside prison and have to surrender before the jail at the end of his 14th day from the day he is released.”
Jannayak Janta Party President Dushyant Chautala met his father on Friday inside the Tihar Jail before officially announcing his support to BJP. Sources say that Naina Chautala, mother of Dushyant Chautala, will be Deputy Chief Minister where Manohar Lal Khattar will be Chief Minister of Haryana.
Ajay Chautala and his father Om Prakash Chautala were convicted in January 2013 by a Delhi court in connection with illegal recruitment of over 3000 teachers. Both were found guilty of taking bribe in exchange of selecting teachers.
