Amar Singh puts up a brave face on Allahabad High Court directive

Amar Singh has put on a brave face after losing a case against a corruption enquiry against him, in the Allahabad High Court.

Talking to the media, Singh let it be known that he too was in favor of a probe, though he had denied all allegations before the High Court and asked the FIR against him to be quashed.

However, the High Court, instead asked the Central Enforcement Directorate, which typically probes cases of money laundering and tax evasion, to probe the allegations and get back within a month.

“There is not a shred of evidence against me,” Singh, who was in the news for trying to taint members of the Lokpal Bill drafting committee recently, said.

The original FIR against Singh was filed on October 15, 2009, by a Kanpur resident Shiv Kant Tripathi under various sections of the IPC, the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Money Laundering Act, accusing him of various financial irregularities when the Samajwadi Party was in power in Uttar Pradesh.

Singh recently suffered another set back when the Supreme Court lifted the order prohibiting the publication of his alleged phone tapping records, that, among other things, show him talking ‘freely’ with many celebrities.
