"I am not guilty. I am not absconding. I have done nothing wrong," Singh said.

"I will fight as per law," he asserted.On his son Narendra Mohan making an obscene gesture at the media on Friday, he said, "What my son did was wrong and I apologise on his behalf."

"I do not own those many properties as are being shown," the MLA from Santa Cruz area of Mumbai said.The Economic Offences Wing of the Mumbai police on Friday attached 12 properties of Singh and his family in the metropolis, three days after lodging an FIR against them for possessing assets disproportionate to their known sources of income.

"The allegations have wrecked my political career," the Congress leader said, adding a public interest litigation (which led to the filing of FIR) alone cannot be used to level charges against him.The Supreme Court had on Friday refused to grant him any immediate relief from action in the corruption case.
