Amar Singh, 2 former BJP MPs sent to Tihar jail
Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh was on Tuesday arrested and lodged in Tihar Jail in a sensational twist in the cash-for-vote scam that rocked Parliament three years ago after he made a dramatic appearance in a local court within hours of claiming to be too ill.
55-year-old Singh was denied bail and arrested after Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal remanded him in judicial custody for 14 days in the case in which he has been chargesheeted by Delhi Police following Supreme Court's displeasure over the "shoddy" probe.
The arrest came when the former Samajwadi Party appeared a couple of hours after pleading for exemption from personal appearance on medical grounds but the court was unconvinced and asked him to produce all his medical reports.
