Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh was on Friday questioned by the Delhi Police in connection with the 2008 ‘cash-for-vote’ scam.
The former Samajwadi Party leader was grilled for three-and-a-half hours at the Crime Branch office after two accused, Sanjeev Saxena and Suhail Hindustani, named him, police sources said.
The sources said he denied involvement in the scam.
Mr. Singh, who is accused of sending bribe money to win over three Bharatiya Janata Party MPs during the 2008 confidence motion, did not speak to the media.
Police did not rule out the possibility of Mr. Singh being questioned again and it could take place after a status report is filed in the Supreme court next Friday.
BJP MP Ashok Argal, who was allegedly sought to be bribed, is expected to be questioned on Monday.
Mr. Singh’s appearance before the police comes after the Delhi Police issued summons to him under Section 160 of the Criminal Procedure Code, asking him to present himself before the Crime branch.
