New Delhi, Jul 20: The Delhi Crime branch on Wednesday, Jul 20 would interrogate a former BJP worker Suhail Hindustani regarding the cash-for-votes scam case. Suhail is an alleged middleman in the scam.

Hindustani is alleged to be the conduit between Amar Singh and BJP MPs in July 2008 during trust vote in Parliament over the Indo-US nuke deal. He is claimed to be a former member of BJP's youth wing.

He was issued notice two days after the arrest of Sanjeev Saxena, who allegedly delivered bribes to lure three BJP MPs -- Argal, Mahavir Bhagora and Faggan Singh Kulaste -- into voting for the Manmohan Singh government in the 2008 trial of strength over the Indo-US nuclear deal.

Argal and former MP Bhagora, who were approached allegedly by Saxena to vote in favour of UPA, claimed that Saxena told them the money was given by the former SP leader.

Argal said, "Saxena is related to Amar Singh. Records are there (to prove it). Saxena said he brought the money from Amar Singh's place." The police also may grill Sudheendra Kulkarni, a former aide of LK Advani, whose role a Parliamentary panel said should be investigated in connection with the scam.
