In 2019, the Enforcement Directorate had attached properties worth 3 crores 68 lakhs of Om Prakash Chautala. These properties are located in New Delhi, Panchkula, and Sirsa.
This action was taken in connection with a case registered under money laundering in a case of disproportionate assets.

However, Chautala was released from the Tihar Jail on July 2, 2021, from a 10-year prison sentence after completing the due formalities.
