NEW DELHI: Thirty jail officials who were found hand in glove with the Unitech promoters, Ajay Chandra and Sanjay Chandra, were suspended, Delhi Prisons Authority said on Wednesday.

Sandeep Goel, Director General (Prisons) said they had received a letter from Delhi Police with names of 32 jail officials who had been prima facie complicit during the inquiry

“Of the 32 personnel, 30 are regular employees, while two are contractual staff (one data entry operator and one nursing orderly),” the DG said.

According to the authority, it has acted against 30 jail officials and placed them under suspension. It is also terminating the services of the two contractual employees.

Delhi Police commissioner Rakesh Asthana had written to the Union ministry of home affairs and the director general of Delhi Prisons to act in this regard.

The Supreme Court had earlier asked Asthana to probe the nexus after taking note of a status report filed by the Enforcement Directorate, which highlighted certain disturbing facts relating to the way in which the premises of Central Jail Tihar had been misused by the Chandra brothers.

The SC had transferred both the brothers from Central Jail Tihar to Arthur Road and Taloja Central Jail in Mumbai. The police chief had submitted a report in this regard on September 28 after visiting Mumbai and Tihar Jail in connection with the probe.

On October 6, the SC granted permission to conduct a full-fledged criminal investigation in the matter based on the inquiry conducted by Delhi Police. It had also directed the officials of Tihar Jail to be placed under suspension and the Union home ministry to respond to the suggestions that were contained in the report submitted by Asthana.
