Chanda opens his defence on February 19, 2024.

It was alleged that Chanda, between May 12, 2020, and October 1, 2022, acting together with others unknown, stole a case record number CRMP/001/2020, a property of the State which he later burnt.

The missing record pertains to the matter in which the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) entered a nolle prosequi where Chanda was jointly charged with Intelligent Mobility Solutions Board Chairman Walid Ei Nahas and former Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) boss, Zindaba Soko, for corrupt practices and possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime.
