Rewati Raman appears before police in cash-for-vote scam.

Samajwadi Party MP Rewati Raman Singh today appeared before Delhi Police for questioning in connection with the 2008 cash-for-vote scam, the fourth person to be quizzed in the past 10 days after the Supreme Court came down heavily on investigators for carrying out a shoddy probe.
Rewati Raman, the 68-year-old Allahabad MP, reached the Crime Branch office in Chanakyapuri at around 11:40 a.m.
The questioning of Rewati Raman comes three days after his former party colleague Amar Singh was questioned by the investigators.
Two persons Sanjeev Saxena, former aide of Amar Singh, and Suhail Hindustani, an alleged go-between Amar Singh and BJP sought to be bribed, were arrested after quizzing.
The aim of questioning is to ask Rewati Raman about the telephone call he received from Hindustani on the midnight of July 21 and 22 to strike a deal to buy BJP MPs, a senior police official said. Police had already given a virtual clean chit to Rewati Raman and others saying it was Hindustani only who tried to approach them for striking a deal for MPs to vote in favour of the UPA government.
