New Delhi: The probe into the money trail in the cash-for-vote scam has led the Delhi police to tell a court here that there was no "abnormal withdrawal" from the bank accounts of Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh ahead of the July 2008 trust motion faced by the Congress led UPA-I government.

The Crime Branch of Delhi Police also said ‘detailed efforts’ made to link the currency notes waved in the Lok Sabha have failed till now.

"There is no abnormal withdrawal from the accounts of accused Amar Singh. Detailed efforts have been made to link the money trail but there is system in the banks to record the number of currency notes at the time of payment to the customers," the police said in its supplementary chargesheet filed before Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal.

The chargesheet, which gave details of the bank accounts held by Singh and his wife Pankaja Kumar Singh, has not added any other person as accused in the fresh chargesheet.

Police gave details of four bank accounts of Singh in the chargesheet from June 1 to July 31, 2008 to ascertain whether the money displayed in the Lok Sabha during the trust vote on July 22, 2008 had come from his account or not.

During the period, the maximum amount withdrawn from Singh's four bank accounts in Royal Bank of Scotland, Yes Bank, State Bank of India and United Bank of India, was only Rs 5.17 lakh, the police said in its chargesheet.

The chargesheet also gave a clean chit to Shyam Jaju, the then in-charge of the national head office of BJP, saying no evidence was found regarding delivery of bribe money by him to Sanjeev Saxena, one of the accused in the case.

"During investigation, no further evidence could be found to connect Shyam Jaju with Sanjeev Saxena and further no evidence was found regarding delivery of bribe money by Shyam Jaju to Saxena on July 22, 2008," police said.

Saxena, in his bail plea filed in the court, had taken a plea that he was handed over the cash of Rs one crore by Jaju.

Police said Jaju had told them that he used to receive crores of rupees in cash from various state units of BJP and maintained a bank account in the name of BJP with Axis Bank.

Police said the supplementary chargesheet was in continuation of their main chargesheet filed in the case on August 24 and it deals with their "earlier efforts made to trace the money trail".

Police omitted parts of tapes: BJP leader

Delhi police has ‘deliberately omitted" parts of the video tapes of sting operation into the 2008 cash-for-vote scam case, two accused former BJP MPs alleged before a court here on Friday.

"The paramount material and their (prosecution's) 'bramhastra' is the tapes. There is deliberate omission on part of the prosecution (in omitting it). After the money was put on the table, there are interviews by the media which are omitted.

"The person conducting the sting operation said (in his statement) that money was put on table and after that he did some interviews and his piece to camera. Where is that (footage)?," Counsel appearing for Faggan Singh Kulaste and Mahabir Singh Bhagora said before the Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal while seeking bail in the case.

Senior advocate Siddharth Luthra appearing for the two former BJP MPs said that the camera person had also confirmed about the interviews in his statement.

"The camera person also tells the same thing. We are living in an era of digital format. In the process of editing it (the final outcome) can be in form of seamless recording.

"Do they have the original tapes and if yes why have they not placed it before the court?" Luthra asked.

While seeking bail in the case the counsel for the duo said that this is one of the rare cases in which facts of the case is not in dispute but "colouring of the facts" is in dispute.
