Amar Singh on Tuesday told a Delhi court that the Delhi Police has failed to trace the source of money, which was waved by BJP MPs in the Lok Sabha during the 2008 trust vote, and said there was "absolutely nothing" against him in the cash-for-vote scam.
Seeking bail after appearing before Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal, Amar Singh said their are only circumstantial evidence against him and the source of money, which is the most important link in the case, is not known.
"The only thing against him (Amar Singh) is circumstantial evidence. There is no link that from where the money came. There is nothing to show that either Amar Singh gave money or gave instructions (to anyone) or the money was given at his behest. On merits, there is absolutely nothing in this case," said former Additional Solicitor General Amrendra Sharan, appearing for Singh.
