Cash-in-bag: Yadav told to appear in trial court
Chandigarh: The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Friday directed former high court judge Nirmal Yadav to appear before the trial court in the multi-million cash-in-bag scam to get bail.
Nirmal Yadav, who retired as a judge of the Uttarakhand High Court last year and had been a judge in the high court here earlier, has been directed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court to appear before a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special court here August 27 to furnish bail bonds.
The high court issued Friday notices to the CBI and other respondents following a plea for anticipatory bail filed by Yadav.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court was hit by this scam after a packet containing Rs 15 lakh in cash was delivered on August 13, 2008, at the Sector 11 residence of (then) newly-appointed high court judge, Nirmaljit Kaur.
She complained to the police and got a case registered.
Yadav was a sitting judge in the high court here when the scam was reported.
The police later arrested the then Haryana additional advocate general, Sanjeev Bansal, a property dealer Rajiv Gupta and Delhi-based hotelier Ravinder Singh in this connection.
Bansal and Gupta told the police that the money was meant for another high court judge, Nirmal Yadav. They claimed that another packet containing Rs.15 lakh was separately delivered to Yadav at her Sector 24 official residence later after the first packet was wrongly delivered to the other woman judge.
That money landed with the Chandigarh police after Nirmaljit Kaur complained.
Yadav, who went on leave after the episode surfaced, was later transferred to the Uttarakhand High Court.
While the case was transferred from Chandigarh Police to the CBI, the Supreme Court also set up a committee of senior judges to investigative the matter separately.
The CBI had filed a charge sheet against Yadav for corruption, conspiracy, destroying evidence and creation of false evidence.
Besides the charge sheet, the CBI also submitted a 126-page documentary evidence in the case.
