Amar Singh
New Delhi, Jul 19: Amar Singh, is probably having the toughest time of his life. First, he was booted out of the Mulayam Singh-led Samajwadi Party, then there was his physical ailments, followed by tapped conversation with Bipasha Basu and now the arrest of his aide Sanjeev Saxena in the 2008 cash-for-votes-scam.

But that is not the end of this tumultuous phase, as there seems to be more in store. According to reports, the Delhi Police have sought permission to question the beleaguered leader over the cash-for-votes scam.

CNN-IBN cites sources as saying that the Delhi Police have written to the Union Home Ministry seeking permission to quiz Amar Singh and Loksabha Member Ashok Argal. It can be recalled, that despite numerous allegations from various political quarters, the duo have never been questioned in the matter.

As is the procedure in such cases, if the Home Ministry has indeed received the request, then it will forward the letter to Speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.

It can be recollected that according to some reports. Sanjeev Saxena has claimed that Amar Singh gave him the money to bribe some MPs to abstain from voting during the trust vote in 2008.
