Hindustani was arrested in July this year for helping to bribe three BJP MPs to support the government in a trust vote in 2008. He allegedly played the middleman in the scam. According to Delhi police, Hindustani danced in the tune played by former Samajwadi party chief Amar Singh.
The police has also accused former BJP advisor, Sudheendra Kulkarni, of asking party MPs to offer themselves "for sale" ahead of the trust vote for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Kulkarni, skipped his scheduled date to show up in the court today, Sept 19.
