Lucknow: Documents of the alleged financial fraud case against SP leader Amar Singh and others amounting to Rs 500 crore have been handed over to Kolkata police, a senior police officer said here on Thursday.

"All documents related to the case against Singh filed at a police station in Kanpur had been provided to Superintendent of Police in Kolkata through a special messenger on October 19," Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Brij Lal told reporters here.

It was decided to transfer the case to Kolkata police for further investigation as preliminary investigations by Uttar Pradesh police revealed that the majority of companies mentioned in the FIR against the SP leader and others were registered in Kolkata.

On October 15, one Shiva Kant Tiwari lodged an FIR with Babupurwa police station in Kanpur district against Amar Singh and his wife accusing them of amalgamating companies allegedly owned or run by them for converting black money into white, a charge SP leader dismissed as "conjecture".

The name of actor Amitabh Bachchan also figured in the 14-page complaint as director of one of the companies, the ADG said.
