A city court on Saturday framed charges against four people for alleged forgery and cheating and for tapping the phone of former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh in 2005.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja charged Bhupinder Singh, Vijay, Kuldeep Singh and Anurag Singh under sections 420 (cheating), 471 (forgery) and 120B (conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code.

The court also found them prima facie guilty of offences under the Indian Telegraph Act. Recording of the statements of witnesses in the case will start July 19.

A case was registered by Delhi Police's Special Cell Dec 30, 2005 following allegations that Amar Singh's phone was being tapped.

The telephone conversations had been recorded for over two months by Bhupinder Singh, a private detective.
