BeyondHeadlines News Desk

New Delhi: Senior lawyer Shanti Bhushan, who has also served as the union law minister and and is presently co-chairman of the 10-member Lokpal Bill Committee, today moved criminal contempt petition against Amar Singh in the Supreme Court, seeking action against him.

Bhushan wants the Supreme Court to order a probe to find out those involved in the fabrication of a CD which allegedly says Amar Singh had a conversation with him about fixing a judge.

In his petition before the court he said by fabricating the CD Amar Singh is trying to derail the 2G case and the Amar Singh phone tapping case before the court.

It also said Amar Singh is trying to influence the judiciary by the fabricated CD.

This is a clear case of contempt of court and the apex court should initiate criminal contempt proceedings against Amar Singh, said the petition.

He also asked the court to order a probe to find those involved in the fabrication of the CD.
