A Delhi court has exonerated Ajay Chandra and Ramesh Chandra, former Unitech promoters, among others in a case related to bribing a police official in one of the several cases registered against them for cheating the home buyers. However, both will continue to remain in jail, for their alleged roles in other cases.

According to the prosecution, it received information from a source that the accused people, Neeraj Kumar and Sanjay Sharma, a former inspector at Hauz Khas police station, conspiring with lawyer Neeraj Walia and in connivance with Seema Manga and Pradeep Kumar of Unitech Limited were obtaining “undue advantage” in the form of illegal gratification from the company through Walia for improperly and dishonestly performing their duties in the investigation of the criminal cases against the directors/promoters of the company.

In a December 16 judgment, special judge Harish Kumar, cleared the Chandras, along with four others, of criminal conspiracy and relevant sections of Prevention of Corruption Act, for paying a 2 lakh bribe to Neeraj Kumar, the then Station House Office (SHO) of Saket police station.

The court said it did not find sufficient grounds to proceed against the accused persons.
