Last updated 8/7/2023 at 8:26pm
August 4, 2023 - DuPage County State's Attorney Bob Berlin and Glendale Heights Chief of Police George Pappas announced today that a DuPage County Grand Jury has indicted the Glendale Heights Village President on two counts of Disorderly Conduct, a Class 4 Felony, for allegedly filing a false police report on two separate occasions. Yesterday afternoon, Judge Demetrios Panoushis issued a personal recognizance arrest warrant for Chodri Ma Khokhar, 66 (d.o.b. 9/5/1956) of the 1500 block of President Street, Glendale Heights. Khokhar turned himself in to authorities late yesterday afternoon after business hours where he was processed and subsequently released.
According to the Indictment, on April 26, 2023, and again on May 12, 2023, Khokhar claimed he was the victim of an assault in a police report he filed with the Glendale Heights Police Department that states "an offense was committed, being assault" and that he filed that report "knowing at the time of the transmission that there was no reasonable grounds for believing that the offense had been committed."
"I thank the Grand Jury for their time and dedication to the rule of law," Berlin said. "I also thank the Glendale Heights Police Department for their thorough investigation into this matter as well as Assistant State's Attorney Lynn Cavallo for her efforts."
"I thank DuPage County State's Attorney Bob Berlin and his Public Integrity Unit for presenting this case to a Grand Jury," Pappas said.
Khokhar's next court appearance is scheduled September 11, 2023, for arraignment in front of Judge Daniel Guerin.
