New Delhi: The name of Congress MP Abhishek
Manu Singhvi has been dropped by a Delhi court from the list
of witnesses in a complaint for prosecution of social activist
Anna Hazare and his team members for allegedly instigating
public against government during their anti-graft campaign
last year.

Metropolitan Magistrate Anil Kumar dropped Singhvi`s name
saying that the Rajya Sabha member was made witness for
"sensationalising" the matter.

The court withdrew its order summoning Singhvi on a plea
by the parliamentarian, who said he had been made witness
(without his consent) by Haryana resident Satbir in his
complaint.

"I find nothing in the complaint as to how he (Singhvi) is
relevant in the present case or what facts have been witnessed
by him," the court said.

While noting that Singhvi`s name was not mentioned
correctly in the application, the court said, "The same
reflects deliberation on part of the complainant to get
issued summons to him in capacity of witness for sensation or
otherwise."
