INLD chief OP Chautala to surrender before Tihar Jail authorities today
The High Court had made it clear that it would not entertain any plea on extension of time for surrender.

New Delhi: INLD chief and former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala to surrender before Tihar Jail authorities on Saturday, as per the Delhi High Court orders for misusing bail conditions by campaigning for Assembly polls, saying he cannot "take the court for a ride".

The High Court had made it clear that it would not entertain any plea on extension of time for surrender. "Let him surrender and let's not bargain over this," it said.

"You (Chautala) cannot take the court for a ride and cannot be permitted to question the majesty, dignity and decorum of this court," Justice Siddharth Mridul said trashing repeated submissions of senior advocates led by Ram Jethmalani that the 79-year-old leader be allowed to remain out till October 17, the date fixed earlier for his surrender.

Chautala, who could not be served with the HC notice on Thursday night by the Central Bureau of Investigation, first turned up on Friday morning before Special CBI Judge Manu Rai Sethi at Tees Hazari district courts in the national capital in pursuance of a disproportionate assets case.

The trial court on Friday had rejected Chautala's plea seeking exemption from personal appearance and permission to take part in the ongoing Haryana election campaign.

During the hearing, the court had said, "Fact is if he (Chautala) is well enough to campaign, well enough to travel, he will have to surrender.

"I cannot for a moment permit anyone to question the majesty, dignity and decorum of this court. I cannot permit this. Justice must not only be done, it must be seen to be done," the judge had said.

Asking Chautala to surrender on Saturday before the jail authorities, the court had said that he can be taken to AIIMS if the medical/jail superintendent considers so.

The INLD leader was granted bail in the case relating to teachers recruitment scam in which he has been convicted and sentenced to 10 years and his appeal is pending in the high court.
