The Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday questioned former Chhattisgarh chief minister Ajit Jogi's son, Amit, in connection with the cash-for-MLA scam.

He later told reporters at the CBI headquarters in Delhi, "I answered all the questions posed to me by the CBI. I came because my father wanted me to. I have not got any notice from the CBI so far."

Amit has denied all the allegations, CBI sources said adding his fingerprints would be matched with those on the currency notes that had been allegedly handed over to the BJP MLAs.

The CBI has filed an FIR under the Prevention of Corruption Act and Indian Penal Code against Ajit Jogi, Amit Jogi and Congress MP P R Khunte, who had earlier defected from the BJP, for allegedly bribing BJP MLAs and trying to split the party after the December 1 assembly elections.
