"We have sent a letter to the Home Ministry," a senior police official said.

Police is also looking for a driver, Sanjay, who ferried Saxena to the houses of the MPs and a mobile phone used by him to make calls while delivering the cash.

Allegations were levelled by the then BJP MPs Ashok Argal, Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahavir Bhagora that Saxena had delivered Rs one crore in cash to them at the 4 Ferozshah Road residence of Ashok Argal to vote in favour of government.

The crime branch submitted two out of three BJP MPs -- Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahavir Bhagora -- have stated that on July 22, 2008, Saxena delivered money to them and third MP Ashok Argal at the latter's residence here.

The case was registered in 2009 on the recommendation of the Parliamentary Committee. Saxena has been booked for various offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act, police said.
