Delhi’s Tihar Jail.
In the Unitech case, 30 employees of Tihar Jail have been suspended. At the same time, two employees have been terminated. A letter was written in this regard to the DG of Tihar Jail and the Ministry of Home Affairs on behalf of Delhi Police.
In the case, 32 employees of Tihar Jail were accused of collusion with former Unitech promoters Ajay Chandra and Sanjay Chandra. On the report of Delhi Police Commissioner, the court had directed for further investigation in this matter. After this, the Crime Branch of Delhi Police started investigation by registering an FIR.
The police commissioner had ordered an inquiry
A case has been registered against 32 staff of Tihar Jail under relevant sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act in the Crime Branch of Delhi Police after colluding with former Unitech promoters Ajay Chandra and Sanjay Chandra. A letter was also sent to the DG of Tihar Jail and the Ministry of Home Affairs for action. After this this action has taken place. The Supreme Court had last Wednesday directed a detailed probe into the nexus between Tihar Jail officials and jailed Unitech ex-promoters Sanjay and Ajay Chandra based on a report by Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana. On August 26, the Supreme Court had directed the transfer of the Chandra brothers from Tihar Jail in Delhi to Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai and Taloja Jail in Maharashtra.
A Delhi court on October 5 sent three people, including former Unitech group promoter Sanjay Chandra’s wife Preeti Chandra and her father Ramesh Chandra, to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody in connection with a money laundering case. Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana sent Preeti Chandra to custody till October 9 and Ramesh Chandra till October 8. Rajesh Malik was sent to custody till 11 October.
Chandra brothers were arrested in 2017
The ED had requested to remand the accused for seven days for interrogation. Senior advocate PK Dubey, appearing for Preeti Chandra, opposed the remand application and said that she has appeared before the probe agency as and when required. So there is no need to send them into custody.
Dubey also said that his client has been cooperating fully in the investigation. Ramesh Chandra is the founder of Unitech. Rajesh Malik is an officer in Carnosty Management (India) Pvt. He was allegedly involved in the case. Sanjay Chandra and his brother Ajay Chandra were arrested by the Delhi Police in 2017 for cheating home buyers.
