Court Denies Relief to Tainted Former Haryana Minister

Gurgaon, May 31 (IANS): Refusing relief to a former Haryana minister, a sessions court here Monday upheld his sentence of four years and a fine of Rs.10,000 slapped on him in a disproportionate assets case.

Former public works department minister Dharamveer Yadav was convicted under the Prevention of Corruption Act for owning property beyond the known sources of his income.

Yadav's counsel Satyajeet Verma said: "The court has ignored the proofs of his innocence. We are very disappointed with the decision."

"We will challenge the decision in the high court," he said.

Yadav was charged in May 2002. The trial court sentenced him to four years' jail Feb 8, 2008. He moved the Punjab and Haryana High court in November 2009 against the judgement after which the trial was sent to the sessions court.
