In a breather for Amar Singh, sources suggest that there is no sufficient evidence to arrest any politician, including Amar Singh in the cash-for-vote scandal that hit headlines during the Indo-US civil nuclear deal trust vote in 2008.

Sources also say no politician from the Congress or the Samajwadi party got in touch with alleged middleman Suhail Hindustani was the man who was supposedly liasioning between Amar Singh and the BJP MPs who alleged they were being bribed to sell their vote.

The Delhi police will file its status report on the 2008 cash-for-votes scam.

Former Amar Singh's aide, Sanjeev Saxena and former BJP worker Sohail Hindustani had accused Singh of playing a key role in attempting to bribe three BJP MPs to secure their support for the UPA-1 government in the trust vote on July 22, 2008.

Amar Singh was later called for questioning by the Delhi police crime branch. During the questioning, police asked him over a dozen questions related to the money trail and about his personal connection with Saxena and Hindustani.

Highly placed sources in crime branch said Singh denied his link with Saxena and said he might be an employee in one of his many companies.
