Kulkarni, the one time right hand of Advani, appeared before a Delhi court seeking interim bail on Tuesday. However, the self-claimed whistle-blower of the scam has been sent to judicial custody till Oct 1.
Before his arrest, Kulkarni had stated, "I was only a whistle blower and my purpose was to expose the rampant corruption."
"There is no reason to deny interim bail to a person whose regular bail is pending (in the court) and who was not arrested during the investigation,' hoped Kulkarni.
Many claim that Kulkarni has become the scapegoat over cash-for-votes scam which had rocked the Parliament ahead of the trust vote over Indo-US nuclear deal in 2008.
