Highlight Story

Two promoters of CTC, a women’s ethnic wear brand, have been sentenced to two years in jail by a Delhi court for conspiring with an MCD official to prevent demolition of their unauthorised construction.

Siblings Sudesh and Anil Chhabra of Chhabra Trading Company, popularly known as CTC, were given the jail term by Special CBI Judge Pradeep Chaddah.

The court also sentenced MCD official Zakir Hussain, a junior engineer, to three years in jail, saying, "There is rampant corruption in almost all government departments and the MCD is no exception to it. Not a brick can be laid until palms of the officials are suitably greased."

But all the three have been granted bail till July 22.
