HC ex-judge gets relief; CBI court grants bail

A CBI special court on Saturday granted bail to Punjab and Haryana high court former judge Nirmal Yadav in cash-in-bag scam that rocked the nation in August 2008.
A bag containing Rs 15 lakh had been delivered at the official residence of Punjab and Haryana high court judge Justice Nirmaljit Kaur on August 13, 2008. Justice Kaur reported the matter to local police about an attempt to bribe her. The matter was investigated by CBI and an in-house panel of three judges appointed by the Supreme Court and both had held Justice Yadav responsible for irregular purchase of land at Solan for which the cash was sent to her, but wrongly delivered at Justice Kaur’s residence.
On March 4 this year, CBI had filed chargesheet against advocate Sanjeev Bansal, Delhi-based hotelier Ravinder Bhasin, Justice Yadav, Chandigarh-based businessman Rajiv Gupta and businessman Nirmal Singh. Besides the chargesheet.
