Denying reprieve to INLD leader Ajay Chautala, the Supreme Court Friday refused to interfere with his conviction and 10-year jail term at this stage in the teachers’ recruitment scam case.

A bench of Justices FMI Kalifulla and Shiva Kirti Singh said that prima facie the trial court and the Delhi High Court judgments appear to be based on sound reasoning and deserved no interdiction.

The bench, however, gave him liberty to file a plea for interim bail or parole on medical grounds.
