Chandigarh: Former Punjab and Haryana High Court Judge Nirmal Yadav faces trial in the infamous 2008 cash-at-judge's door scam after a special CBI court here today framed charges against her in the case.  

The order comes after the Supreme Court had on January 3 dismissed Yadav's plea for a stay on proceedings of the trial court and pulled her up for adopting delaying tactics.  

Special CBI court Judge Vimal Kumar framed charges against Yadav under Section 11 (getting valuable things without or inadequate consideration) of the Prevention of Corruption Act and four others under various sections of the IPC, including Section 120-B (conspiracy).  

The court has now adjourned the case to February 15, when six prosecution witnesses will be examined in this case, Anupam Gupta, CBI public prosecutor, told reporters outside the court.

Gupta said the arguments on application of Yadav seeking permanent exemption from personal appearance in the trial would also be heard on that day.
