Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, July 25 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Ashok Argal, one of the three party MPs who were allegedly bribed during the trust vote in 2008, is likely to be questioned by the Delhi Police Monday evening, sources said.

Sanjeev Saxena, Amar Singh’s former private secretary, and Suhail Hindustani, a former member of the BJP’s youth wing Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, have been arrested for their alleged involvement in the scam.
