SC dismisses ex-judges' plea in PF scam

 A Bench of Justices H S Bedi and C K Prasad in an order rejected the plea of the judges on the ground that there was no merit in it. The CBI charge sheet had named judges R N Mishra, R P Mishra, R P Yadav, all retired Allahabad HC judges, and three retired district judges R S Chaubey, A K Singh and A K Shrivastav. The special CBI court is to hear the case on March 14 .

The CBI had filed a charge sheet against 78 people in the case involving alleged fraudulent withdrawal of crores of rupees, between 2001 and 2008, from PF of employees posted at Ghaziabad district court.

The accused judges were told to appear before the court on earlier occasions also, but they did not turn up citing medical reasons. The scam was exposed after special CBI judge Rama Jain had lodged a criminal case with Kavi Nagar police station on February 15, 2008.
