Hearing of cash at judge's door case, in which former high court judge Justice Nirmal Yadav is one of the accused, was adjourned on Monday after deputy commissioner of police (North), Delhi, Madhur Verma sought exemption from personal appearance, citing preparations for the Independence Day.

The court was to record Verma's statement, who was principal investigating officer of the infamous cash at judge's door case. In 2008, when the case came to light, Verma was posted as additional superintendent of police (ASP) of the Chandigarh Police. Accepting Verma's application, the court adjourned the hearing to September 14.

THE CASE

In 2008, the CBI had registered a case under various sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act against justice Yadav, along with former additional advocate general of Haryana Sanjiv Bansal, Chandigarh-based businessman Rajiv Gupta, Delhi-based hotelier Ravinder Singh Bhasin and Nirmal Singh.

The case had made headlines after Rs 15 lakh, allegedly intended to be given to Yadav, were wrongly delivered at the residence of Justice Nirmaljit Kaur, another high court judge on August 13.
