Probe Singhvi role in sex scandal: Court12/06/2012 13:39:21
The Paravoor first class magistrate court in Kochi has directed the police to probe allegations that Congress MP, Manu Abhishek Singhvi, was involved in the sensational Varappuzha sex scandal case. A 16-year-old girl was sold by her parents for Rs 1 lakh last year in the case. Magistrate S. Radhakrishnan directed the Vadakkekkara circle inspector (CI) to verify the complaint filed by Bahujan Samaj Party Ernakulam secretary G. Girish Babu. Mr Babu, in a statement submitted before the court, said the incident happened when Mr Singhvi was in Kochi to appear for the promoters of other state lotteries.
It may be noted that Singhvi was recently embroiled in a CD controversy and had to resign as chairman of a Parliamentary Committee and party spokesperson in a damage control exercise ahead of the resumption of the budget session of Parliament. 53- year-old Singhvi, an eminent lawyer and a Rajya Sabha member, had sent a letter to Congress President Sonia Gandhi informing her of his decision ten days after circulation of a CD purportedly involving him.
