11 ex-MPs put on trial for 2005 scam
Delhi court yesterday framed graft and criminal conspiracy charges against 11 former parliamentarians in the infamous 2005 cashfor-query scam.
Special Judge Kiran Bansal put the 11 former MPs and another person on trial — which will commence from January 12.
A sting operation against the then MPs was conducted by two journalists, which was telecast on a private news channel on December 12, 2005. It came to be known as the cash-for-query scam. (PTI)
