A Delhi court on Tuesday issued a non-bailable warrant against Sohail Hindustani, one of the accused in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam case, after he and his counsel failed to appear before the court.
Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal directed that non-bailable warrant be issued against Hindustani, an alleged BJP activist who, along with other co-accused, is out on bail.
"Issue non-bailable warrants to Sohail Hindustani with notice to surety for August 22," the court said. Neither Hindustani nor his counsel appeared in the court for hearing. On being asked by the judge, the counsel for the other accused said they had no information about their whereabouts.
Meanwhile, the counsel for accused ex-BJP MP Faggan Singh Kulaste, sought call detail records of co-accused and Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh, a senior Congress leader, prosecution witnesses S P Gupta and Lovely Singh.Kulaste's counsel Anil Soni said, "The Delhi police is not providing them the call details due to its malafide designs."
