Bribe scam: CBI to question Buta on Aug 24
Mumbai, Aug 20: Chairman of NCSC Buta Singh's statement will be soon recorded by the CBI in connection with the corruption case against his son.
CBI Joint Director (West Zone ) Rishiraj Singh on Tuesday, Aug 20 said, "We have to question Buta Singh by Aug 24. His statement will be recorded as a witness and not as an accused."
Buta Singh's son Sarbjot Singh was arrested on Jul 31, for allegedly seeking Rs 1 crore bribe from Nashik-based contractor Ramarao Patil to close a case pending before the National Commission for Scheduled Castes against him.
Earlier, Buta Singh had said in Delhi that the "latest attack (by CBI) is an attempt to kill my whole political life and my political future."
