Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

Ajay Chautala, the father of Haryana Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) chief Dushyant Chautala, has got furlough (leave from jail) for two weeks. He can come out of the jail this evening or tomorrow in the morning. He is currently lodged in Tihar Jail in Delhi.

The development occurred barely a day after Dushyant, whose party has won 10 seats in the results of Haryana Assembly election declared on 24 October, secured the post of deputy chief minister in a deal to form a new government in the state with the BJP. However, this is part of a normal legal process explained later in this report.

Furlough for teacher recruitment scam convict

Ajay Chautala went to jail in connection with the case of junior basic trend (JBT) teacher recruitment scam of Haryana. Former Haryana Chief Minister and Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) president Om Prakash Chautala and his son Ajay Chautala were sentenced to 10 years by a CBI special court. A total of 55 people were convicted by the court in this scam.

A mobile phone was recovered from Ajay Chautala lodged in Tihar Jail in June this year. Acting on a tip-off, the police had taken action and recovered the phone from him. That is to say that Ajay Chautala’s notoriety extends beyond his conviction.

In June 2008, OP Chautala and 53 others were charged in connection with the appointment of 3,206 junior basic teachers in the state of Haryana during 1999–2000. In January 2013 a New Delhi court sentenced Chautala and his son Ajay Singh Chautala to ten years’ imprisonment under various provisions of the IPC and the Prevention of Corruption Act. Chautala was found guilty of illegally recruiting over 3,000 unqualified teachers. A CBI investigation was ordered by the Supreme Court based on a writ filed by the former director of primary education Sanjeev Kumar, a 1989 batch IAS officer. Their sentences have been upheld by the Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court.

Versus parole

A convict who has already spent more than half the jail term may be granted a furlough for four weeks in a year. The furlough is given to the jail inmate to fulfil social or family obligations. The application is sent to the DG jail and copied to the Home Department after which furlough is granted or denied in 12 weeks.

Furlough can be given for two weeks at a time and extended for two weeks more.

The furlough is a right of the jailed person while parole cannot be sought as a right. During parole, the longer the convict is out of the jail, the longer he has to serve prison term on return. The clause of release by furlough is included in the sentence.
