Accused of bribery, former Abohar MC chief denied bail


Accused of bribery, former Abohar MC chief denied bail

Abohar, October 12

The anticipatory bail application, filed by Pramil Kalani, ex-president of the Abohar Municipal Council (MC), has been dismissed by the court of Additional Sessions Judge Sandeep S Jossan.

Kalani has been facing a corruption case according to which 3.5-kanal land in Dharam Nagari was earmarked for a children park in 2011. Since the MC did not develop it, residents themselves cleaned it and installed swings for kids. Later, Pramil Kalani, the then MC president, “misused” his official position in connivance with Rakesh Chhabra, alias Titu Chhabra, and paved the way to sell that piece of land to Naresh Chhabra at a throw away price of Rs 56.46 lakh on June 27, 2016.

Dharam Nagari residents approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court and the latter directed the Fazilka DC to look into the matter. The DC suspended the MC’s resolution on April 11, 2017.

The Local Bodies Department conducted an inquiry and found Pramil Kalani guilty, who was dismissed.

The court observed, “The court finds that extraordinary relief of anticipatory bail is not to be extended. The court had last month rejected a similar plea of Naresh Chhabra. — OC
