New Delhi: Patiala House court on Monday will pronounce order on a plea for lodging a case against Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh for his alleged role in kidnapping of a witness in 2008 cash-for-vote case.
The plea was made by Hashmat Ali, who accused that Singh had got him kidnapped on September 25, 2008, the day he was to appear before a parliamentary panel inquiring into the scam involving alleged payment of bribes to some MPs for their vote during a trust motion in Lok Sabha on July 22, 2008.
Ali's counsel LK Verma earlier told the court that the Crime Branch of Delhi Police, in its status report to the court on the complaint for lodging the kidnapping case against Singh, has refused to believe his client, despite "solely relying" on his testimony in the cash-for-vote case.
"On the one hand, they (police) are solely relying on Hasmat Ali's testimony in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam case, but here they are disbelieving him and his complaint," Verma said.
The counsel submitted Ali was kidnapped from Khan Market and was taken to Amar Singh's residence where former Samajwadi Party leader slapped him and snatched his mobile phone. He was handed over to the police in presence of media at his residence on the same day, he said.
