Cash-for-vote: Police supply transcripts of CD
New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Saturday supplied copies of transcript of the CD of the sting operation in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam to all the seven accused, including former Samajwadi Party former general secretary Amar Singh and BJP leader L K Advani's former aide Sudheendra Kulkarni.
The transcripts of the CD were suppplied after Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal had during the last hearings questioned the police for delay in handing over the same to the accused.
The court had on April 30 directed the police to supply the transcripts to the accused by May 8, which it had failed to comply with.
The agency had told the court that it did not have the necessary infrastructure and manpower at one place to prepare the transcripts and was given time till today to supply it to the accused persons.
On July 22, 2008, some BJP MPs had waved wads of currency notes on the floor of Lok Sabha during the trust vote, faced by UPA-I government, claiming they were given the money to vote in favour of the Manmohan Singh government.
Amar Singh, Sudheendra Kulkarni, BJP MP Ashok Argal, two ex-party MPs Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahabir Singh Bhagora along with Amar Singh's former aide Sanjeev Saxena and alleged BJP activist Suhail Hindustani are accused in the case.
