New Delhi: Delhi Police has sought permission from the home ministry to quiz former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh in the cash-for-votes scam, according to media reports quoting sources. The Delhi Police will need speaker's permission to question Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh. Earlier on Monday, Delhi Police told a city court that it was former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh who introduced Sanjeev Saxena as his secretary to allegedly bribe three BJP members of Parliament a day before the July 22, 2008 trust vote.
The development, which has already created a flutter in political circles, came two days after the Delhi Police crime branch arrested Saxena for his role in the cash-for-vote scam.
