Haryana minister of sports and youth affairs Sukhbir Kataria has moved a Gurgaon court for anticipatory bail in the 2009 bogus votes case. He represents Gurgaon in the state assembly.

The court of additional district and sessions judge SK Khanduja will hear his bail petition on Wednesday.

A city-based NGO, Matdata Jaagrookta Manch, in its petition filed in 2009, had alleged that Kataria got 17 of his relatives to acquire forged documents to obtain multiple voter cards from different booths in his constituency.

He was issued summons in this regard by the court of judicial magistrate Ashok Maan on March 24. Kataria, in his anticipatory bail plea, has claimed that he got to know about the summons through media reports. On April 1, his supporters had allegedly assaulted two men owing allegiance to the petitioner NGO soon after a court official went to serve the summons.
