New Delhi: The Delhi High Court is likely to pronounce on Thursday its verdict on the appeals of 55 convicts, including former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala and his MLA-son Ajay Chautala in the Junior Basic Teachers recruitment scam case.

Justice Siddharth Mridul had reserved the judgement in the case on July 11 last year.

Chautala, his son and eight others, including Vidya Dhar and Badshami, had been awarded 10 years jail term for illegally recruiting 3,206 junior teachers in the year 2000.
Among other convicts, 44 have been sentenced to four years in jail and one to five-year jail term.

While reserving the judgement, the court asked the Tihar jail authorities to provide it information about the time spent by convicts inside the jail during the trial and after their conviction in the case by the lower court in January last year.

On January 22, 2013, a special CBI court had convicted and awarded varying jail terms to the 55 convicts.

All of them were held guilty of cheating, forgery, using fake documents as genuine, conspiracy under IPC and for abusing their official position under Prevention of Corruption Act.
