Cash-for-votes: Court to hear Kulkarni's bail plea

Cash-for-votes: Court to hear Kulkarni's bail plea

Bail pleas of former BJP MPs Mahavir Singh Bhagora and Faggan Singh Kulaste will also be heard.

New Delhi: A Delhi court will hear the bail pleas of BJP leader LK Advani's former aide Sudheendra Kulkarni and former BJP MPs Mahavir Singh Bhagora and Faggan Singh Kulaste in the cash-for-votes scam case on Monday.

The court has also decided to watch the footage of the sting operation conducted in the run up to the 2008 trust vote in Lok Sabha on the trust motion by Congress-led UPA Government.

Kulkarni, 54, who had failed to appear before the court on two previous dates despite issuance of summons to him, appeared in court on Tuesday and sought interim bail on the ground that he was not arrested by the Delhi Police even during the probe into the case.

The court rejected Kulkarni's claim that he did everything to expose the rampant corruption and the horse-trading underway to win the July 22, 2008 confidence vote and sent him to judicial custody till October 1, which the court also slated for hearing of his regular bail plea.

Meanwhile, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar has allowed Delhi Police to prosecute BJP MP Ashok Argal in the cash-for-votes scam.
