Former Minister Rakesh Dhar Tripathi Granted Relief in Disproportionate Assets Case by High Court

In a significant relief for former minister Rakesh Dhar Tripathi, the Allahabad High Court has suspended his sentence in a disproportionate assets case. Justice Sanjay Kumar Singh approved his bail and postponed the punishment.

The case was registered against Tripathi on June 18, 2013, at the Mutthiganj police station in Allahabad (now Prayagraj), concerning allegations of accumulating wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income. During his tenure in the BSP government, it was alleged that he acquired assets exceeding his declared income.

The MP-MLA special court in Prayagraj had found Tripathi guilty, sentencing him to three years of imprisonment and imposing a fine of INR 10 lakh. This verdict was challenged in the high court through an appeal.
