New Delhi, Feb 26 (ANI): Samajwadi Party (SP) General Secretary Amar Singh appeared before a Delhi court on Thursday, minutes after a bailable warrant was issued against him for not presenting himself in connection with a criminal complaint filed by him in a two-year-old cheating case.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaweri Baweja issued a bailable warrant for Rs. 10,000 against Singh but the order was recalled when the SP leader personally appeared before the court after ten minutes.

Singh was asked to appear before the court on July 13.

The court had on February 20 imposed a fine of Rs. 5,000 on Singh for his failure to depose before the judge.

The court on Wednesday given its last warning to the complainant to appear before it. (ANI)
