New Delhi: The already embattled former real estate czars and ex-Unitech promoters Sanjay Chandra and Ajay Chandra are in more trouble as the Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered a full-fledged probe into their collusion with Tihar Jail officials, who allegedly helped the Chandras run a secret office while they were in jail.
The apex court had earlier directed shifting of Chandra brothers from Tihar and ordered a probe by Delhi police. The erstwhile promoters of realty firm Unitech, Sanjay Chandra and Ajay Chandra were shifted from Delhi's Tihar Jail to Arthur Road Jail and Taloja Central Jail in Mumbai, respectively, as per the Apex court's order.
The Supreme Court order came in the wake of allegations that they were found carrying out their work and various other transactions from Tihar Jail in the national capital.
On August 26, a two-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Dr Dhananjaya Yashwant Chandrachud and also comprising Justice M R Shah had passed the order to shift the two accused and expressed displeasure over the way the accused were allegedly operating from Tihar Jail.
The Supreme Court also ordered that the two accused will not be provided with any kind of additional facility in the Arthur Road jail and Taloja jail. The apex court had also ordered that both the brothers be housed separately.
