New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday stayed
a trial court order issuing summons to Samajwadi Party MP
Rewati Raman Singh to appear as an accused in 2008
cash-for-vote scam case.

"The proceedings before the trial court shall be stayed
till the next date of hearing that is November 15," Justice
Suresh Kait said while allowing Rewati Raman`s plea that he be
not forced to appear as an accused before the trial court.

The court, which issued a notice to Delhi police after
taking note of the petition, said the "audio-video CDs of the
sting operation" be also submitted to it on the next date
of hearing.

Earlier, the lower court had brushed aside the clean chit
given to Singh in the scam and issued a summon as an accused
to him for November 3, saying "there was sufficient material
to show that he was a part of alleged criminal conspiracy."

During the day, Justice Kait granted bail to Rajya Sabha
MP Amar Singh, a co-accused, after taking note of his critical
health conditions.
