Amar Singh
New Delhi, Sept 6: Samajwadi party leader, Amar Singh reached the Delhi Court today, Sept 6 for the hearing over his alleged role in Cash-for-Votes Scam. He earlier had tried to skip the court's hearing claiming that he is unwell.

Delhi Court Judge, considering Singh's physical ailment, had asked for the latter's medical reports. According to the court order, the medical reports and details have to be presented before the court today by 12.30 pm in the afternoon.

Amar has infection in kidney, hence needed to receive treatment every 3 months. "Kindly show me the paper (medical report) when kidney transplant took place and what is his condition right now," the judge said. But, Amar with a poor health condition, finally changed his mind and turned up in the court.

Amar claimed that there is nothing to hide in the Cash-for-vote-scam. His lawyer asks for bail on interim grounds.

On the other hand, former BJP MPs, Mahavir Bhagora and Faggan Kulaste already reached the court. Both the ex-MPs claimed that they received bribe money.

Singh's close aide Sanjiv Saxena and the whistle-blower in the scam Suhail Hindustani were arrested earlier for their alleged role in the scam. Saxena had claimed that the former Samajwadi Party (SP) leader had provided him money to bribe the MPs in 2008 ahead of a confidence vote in Lok Sabha.
