A Delhi court today framed graft and criminal conspiracy charges against 11 former parliamentarians in the 2005 cash-for-query scam.

Special Judge Kiran Bansal put the 11 former MPs and an individual on trial, which will commence from the 12th of next month.

A sting operation against the then MPs was conducted by two journalists which was telecast on a private news channel on December 12, 2005.

The prosecution had relied upon CDs/DVDs containing conversations among the accused and others.

The proceedings against one of an accused have been abated as he has passed away. He was alleged to be a middleman.
