Ranchi: A tribunal here on Thursday sentenced Jharkhand`s Inspector General of Police Nirmala Chaudhary to 15 days in jail for ordering her bodyguards to beat up a retired judge in 2008.

The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) also slapped a fine of Rs 2,000 each on two policemen involved in the case.

Chaudhary had allegedly misbehaved with retired judge BV Rao at a guest house here and asked her bodyguards to thrash him.

The Supreme Court in August 2008 had asked the CAT, Ranchi, to take up the case.
