A Delhi Court imposed a fine of Rs. 25,000 on the Delhi Police because it didn't act as per court orders which sought personal intervention of DCP (NE), Joint Commissioner of Police (Eastern Range) and Commissioner of Police.
During enquiry, it was found that 32 officials of Tihar Jail number 7 were complicit with Ajay Chandra and Sanjay Chandra. Supreme Court had ordered probe into the collusion last week.
The PIL against Asthana had been filed by lawyer Sadre Alam who had sought the quashing of Gujarat-cadre IPS officer Rakesh Asthana's appointment as the new Delhi Police Commissioner.

The government is understood to have put forth a few names of probable contenders who could be considered for appointment as the next CBI director.
Rakesh Asthana, who had a bitter fight with ousted agency chief Alok Verma, was on Friday appointed as the new Director General of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).
The development comes days after Alok Verma was shunted out of the post of CBI director and appointed Director General of Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards.
Justice Najmi Waziri also refused to quash the FIR lodged against CBI Deputy Superintendent Devender Kumar and alleged middleman Manoj Prasad.
The meeting is scheduled to be held at the prime minister's residence at Lok Kalyan Marg.
Alok Verma resumed office a day after the Supreme Court reinstated him as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Director with limited powers on Wednesday.
While the apex court has revoked the government’s suspension order, it has also said that Verma cannot take any major policy decision until the CVC probe into corruption charges against him is over.
The Centre had taken a decision against Verma and CBI Special Director Rakesh Asthana after their feud had become public as they had made allegations of corruption against each other.
