CHANDIGARH: Former Punjab and Haryana High Court judge Nirmal Yadav was granted bail by a CBI court here, on Saturday, in cases of corruption, conspiracy, destroying evidence and creation of false eviedenc ein the infamous cash-at-judge’s door scam.

ON 13th August, 2008 a sum of Rs 15 lakh was wrongly delivered at the residence of Justice Nirmaljit Kaur, another judge of the High Court here. She reported the matter to Chandigarh Police and it was later found out that he cash was meant for Justice Nirmal Yadav.

Justice Yadav, who retired as a judge in the Uttarakhand High Court, personally appeared before the trial court judge in the district courts complex here following a direction by the Punjab and Haryana High Court. She furnished a bail bond of Rs.25,000 and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court directed her to be present at the next date of hearing Sep 16. Accompanied by her lawyer S K Garg and lawyer and family friend Preduman Yadav, 62-year-old Justice Yadav appeared before the Court of Special Judge Ritu Tagore nearly 30 minutes after the proceedings in the case had started.

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 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. 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. Besides the chargesheet, the CBI also submitted a 126-page docum entary evidence in the case.

Justice Yadav had earlier submitted before the court that she had been falsely implicated by the CBI, politicians and bureaucrats, contending that they have made her a scapegoat because her brother was a minister in the Haryana government. Her brother Capt Ajay Singh Yadav is a six-time Congress MLA from Rewari and currently holds the power portfolio in the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government in the state. (Eom)

bribe me with a Bride

Jind(Haryana): With a skewed sex ratio of 861 females to 1,000 males due to decade of female foeticide and a high unemployment rate, it is not surprise that men in Haryana have asked the politicians to ‘bribe them with a Bride’.

Over 250 bachelors assembled in Jind on Wednesday, to protest against the government for being unable to provide employment and brides to them. “Our motto is clear Bahu do; vote lo (give a bride and take a vote),” says Chief of the Bachelors Union, Pawan Kunwara, who has changed his sur name to –Kunwara(bachelor), “being a bachelor is my only identity,” he explains.

On being asked why he choose the issue of unemployment and female foeticide he said that, “The two are not separate, I can’t get a wife because there are hardly any girls and if somehow there is a girl, chances are her father will refuse me because I don’t have a job. Hence to solve the problems of the Haryanavi youth, these two issues have to be solved together.”

Ahead of the Assembly elections on 13th Aug, the bachelors are demanding that political parties make promises of weddings and jobs instead of farm waivers. “The question is not about us being unmarried, it shows that educated men can’t find wives. No one will marry his daughter to an unemployed person. And instead of wavering off debt, we should provide new avenues of employment, so that no one has to take a loan.” But political parties have nothing more then a promised monthly allowance of Rs 3,000 for the educated unemployed.

Brainless sex preference and preference of a male child has made one of the most fertile lands of the country a matrimonial wasteland and presence of unemployment amongst the youth has added to the woes of the Bachelors. “The number of our unemployed bachelors would outnumber most countries’ armies, and still people think it is funny. It is high time we take a step to stop female foeticide and provide employment options to men,” Mr Kunwara added.

The sex ratio of 861 females to 1,000 males the absence of marriageable women has given boost to the crime of trafficking. In many villages of Haryana, wealthy men have to purchase brides from other states as there is a shortage of marriageable females, which is due to rampant Female foeticide.
