Nearly five months after registering cases in the Tehelka expose, the Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday questioned former Bharatiya Janata Party president Bangaru Laxman for allegedly accepting money from a reporter posing as an arms dealer.

CBI sources said Laxman was called to the CBI headquarters in New Delhi and was questioned for nearly four hours.

The anti-corruption bureau questioned him.

The CBI had on December 6, 2004, registered five cases in connection with the expose, including one naming Laxman and two of his personal staff members under section 120-B (conspiracy) of Indian Penal Code and two sections of Prevention of Corruption Act.
