2005 cash-for-question scam: 11 former MPs to be put on trial

New Delhi, Aug 10 (PTI) A special court today ordered framing of graft and criminal conspiracy charges against 11 former MPs, who were charge-sheeted in the infamous 2005 cash-for-question scam for allegedly taking money to ask questions in Parliament.

Special Judge Poonam Chaudhry said that charges for alleged offences of criminal conspiracy under IPC and under the provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act were prima facie made out against these former Parliamentarians, who were expelled in the wake of the scam, and a private person.

The court directed all these 12 accused to remain present before it on August 28 for formally framing charges against them.

The 11 former MPs who are accused in the case are — Chhatarpal Singh Lodha (BJP), Anna Saheb M K Patil (BJP), Manoj Kumar (RJD), Chandra Pratap Singh (BJP), Ram Sewak Singh (Congress), Narender Kumar Kushwaha (BSP), Pradeep Gandhi (BJP), Suresh Chandel (BJP), Lal Chandra Kol (BSP), Y G Mahajan (BJP), Raja Rampal (BSP).

Besides them, the court has also ordered framing of charges against Ravinder Kumar. The proceedings against one of the accused, Vijay Phogat, have been abated as he has died.

Besides these ex-Parliamentarians, two journalists of a web portal were also charge-sheeted for allegedly abetting the offence under the anti-graft law and were summoned by the trial court but the proceedings against them were quashed by the Delhi High Court.

The Delhi Police had charge-sheeted these MPs. The prosecution, represented through Special Public Prosecutor Atul Shrivastava, alleged that they had misused their office as they were caught on camera seeking money during a sting operation for asking questions in Parliament.

The sting operation against the then MPs was conducted by the two journalists. It was telecast on a private news channel on December 12, 2005 and came to be known as cash-for-question scam.

During the hearing today, Lodha, Rampal and Ravinder Kumar were present in court and rest of the accused sought exemption from personal appearance for the day.

The prosecution has relied upon CDs/DVDs containing conversation among the accused and others.

No insurance renewal for Delhi-NCR vehicles without pollution certificate, rules SC

Vehicle owners in Delhi-NCR will have to mandatorily furnish a valid pollution-under-control (PuC) certificate to renew their annual insurance papers, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday.

A bench of justices MB Lokur and Deepak Gupta pronounced this order while hearing a case pertaining to rising air-pollution levels in the national capital.

Though this was one of the suggestions given by the court-appointed Environment Pollution [Prevention and Control] Authority (EPCA), the Centre opposed it. The Union ministry of transport had submitted in its response that the two requirements cannot be merged because while insurance-renewal is an annual feature, PuC checks are required to be carried out at short intervals.

Countering the argument, advocate Aparajita Singh – who is assisting the court on the EPCA’s behalf – said periodicity of the PuC and insurance papers should not be an obstacle. She said the vehicle owner should either present their last four or two PuC certificates while applying for insurance renewal.

In a directive aimed at enhancing the efficiency of PuC centres, the Supreme Court directed the government to monitor them on a regular basis. It also asked the authorities to issue specifications for the kind of equipment required to be installed at PuC centres, so regulatory violations can be curbed.

Solicitor general Ranjit Kumar informed the bench that the government was also exploring the possibility of alerting vehicle owners once their PuC documentation expires. “We will develop a system under which a message will be sent to the owner, reminding him or her to apply for the PuC certificate upon its expiry. This will let vehicle owners know that they are under supervision,” he said.

The Supreme Court has issued several directives, including the imposition of 1% cess on new diesel vehicles with an engine capacity of 2000cc or above, to cut down on pollution levels.
