A Delhi court Tuesday awarded 10 years in jail to former Haryana chief minister and Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) chief Om Prakash Chautala and his son Ajay Chautala in a recruitment scam involving junior basic training (JBT) teachers.

Special CBI Judge Vinod Kumar sentenced the Chautalas and three others to 10 years in jail.

Apart from the Chautalas, Sanjiv Kumar, the then director of primary education, Chautala's former officer on special duty Vidya Dhar and his political adviser Sher Singh Badshami were also awarded the jail terms.

Shortly after the sentence was pronounced, Chautala's supporters threw stones at the court complex.

Om Prakash Chautala and Ajay Chautala, both legislators from Haryana, were taken into custody Jan 16 after being convicted for the illegal recruitment of over 3,000 JBT teachers in the state.

The court had also convicted 53 others for the scam.
