The Supreme Court on gave its nod for criminal prosecution of Indian National Lok Dal leaders Ajay and Abhay Chautala in a disproportionate assets case.

A division bench of V.S. Sirpurkar and T.S. Thakur dismissed their plea of quashing the criminal case against them on the ground that no sanction was taken from authorities before initiating proceedings against them.

The bench said that there was no need to get sanction before their criminal prosecution and vacated the stay on the proceedings.

Refusing to grant any relief to the Chautalas, the bench upheld the Delhi High Court order for their prosecution.

The Supreme Court had on October 22 last year stayed all further proceedings in the DA case against the Chautalas, sons of former Haryana Chief Minister and INLD leader Om Prakash Chautala.

The Chautala brothers had challenged a trial court order summoning them in the disproportionate assets case filed by the CBI.
