 Amar Singh arrested, Cash for vote scam:
Rajya Sabha MP and former Samajwadi Party MP Amar Singh was Tuesday arrested and put in judicial custody until 19 September for his alleged involvement in the money scandal that rocked the vote by Parliament in 2008.

Amar Singh entered the Tis Hazari court around 24:35, surprising the media and court staff, including the judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal.

The leader signaled his support, arguing before the judge could not appear in the morning, he is suffering from an infection in a transplanted kidney that was a million and a half years.

"My body has built up resistance to the kidney as a foreign element," said Amar Singh.

"I was at home, but watching the television show that I'm not appear in court, I rushed to the court personally I have faith in the judiciary and the Constitution of India. Therefore, I have moved my provisional bail, "he added.

Opposing the bail application, the prosecutor Rajiv Mohan said the leader would interfere with evidence or flee May. "Once the accused surrender before the court, which must be taken into custody," he said.

However, defense counsel argued that the court should allow the status quo is maintained for his arrest because he never tempered testing.

The judge adjourned the matter until 15:30, as will the order.

Council Amar Singh said in the morning had moved an application to exempt him from appearing in court since he was sick.

'Amar Singh is not right and is confined to bed. The doctor has advised not to move. That's why we have moved an application will not be able to appear in court today (Tuesday), "his lawyer told reporters outside the court premises.

The application indicated that Amar Singh had undergone a kidney transplant several years ago and had to go to hospital regularly. He also suffered from high blood pressure.

In response, the special judge Sehgal asked his attorney to file the medical report of his health, citing the specific date in which transplanted a kidney and how many times he had visited the doctor.

"To present the medical report that includes all the specific dates of 24:30 today (Tuesday)," said Sehgal.

Singh came to court after that.

Amar Singh and three others were brought before a court on Tuesday after the Delhi Police submitted a list of charges in the scam of corruption.

Judge summons issued August 25 Amar Singh, former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Fagan Singh Kulaste deputies Bhagora and Mahavira, and Sudheendra Kulkarni, a former associate of BJP leader LK Advani.

"The indictment is based on weak circumstantial evidence," said Amar Singh's lawyer.

Bhagora Kulaste and appeared in court and moved an application for bail.

The former aide Amar Singh Sanjeev Saxena and Suhail Hindustani intermediary are both custody and brought before the court.

On July 22, 2008, three members of the BJP waved a sheaf of legal tender notes in the Lok Sabha before a vote of confidence, claiming they were given money to vote for the Manmohan Singh government.
