New Delhi, Feb 25 (ANI): A Delhi court has given final call to Samajwadi Party General Secretary Amar Singh, to appear before it on Thursday to record his statement on a criminal complaint filed by him two years ago.
“It is stated by the counsel for the complainant that the matter be adjourned for tomorrow. Time and again, opportunity has been given to the complainant, but he has failed to appear in the court. Today, no application was filed, neither any reasonable ground has been mentioned,” the court said here on Wednesday.
Anoop Kumar Sharma, counsel for the accused, had sought the court’’s directions to close the evidence in the matter, as Singh has failed to depose repeatedly.
On February 20, the court had imposed a cost of Rs 5,000 on the Rajya Sabha MP for his failure to appear before the judge.
Singh, on June 4 2007, had filed a case against Barun Kumar Verma, alleging he tried to extort money from him in connection with a case in the Supreme Court relating to SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav. (ANI)
