Cash-at-door scam: SC refuses to quash charges against Nirmal Yadav

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to quash corruption charges against former Punjab and Haryana High Court judge Nirmal Yadav in the cash-at-the-door scam.

Nirmal Yadav had sought the quashing of charges against her in the case. The apex court, however, refused and ordered the trial to continue.

The case came to light when a clerk sent by the then Additional Advocate General of Haryana, Sajiv Bansal, mistakenly placed a briefcase containing Rs 15 lakh in cash, meant for Yadav, at the doorstep of another judge Nirmalkant Kaur. The incident dates back to August 2008.
