Lawyer Prashant Bhushan on Friday said he will file a contempt of court case against Amar Singh and police officials in connection with the controversial CD purpotedly featuring his father and prominent jurist Shanti Bhushan.
As Delhi Police filed a closure report in court claiming the CD was genuine negating the Bhushans' claim that it was doctored, Bhushan alleged the conclusions were arrived under pressure from political bosses.
"Police say Amar Singh has told them that he established contact between Shanti Bhushan and Mulayam Singh Yadav. He has confessed and it is a self confession. If he had accepted that there was a conversation about fixing judges, then he has committed contempt of court," Prashant Bhushan said.
He said he would demand an investigation by an independent agency into the CD purportedly having conversations between Shanti Bhushan and political leaders Amar Singh and Yadav.
The controversial CD containing purported conversations between noted lawyer Shanti Bhushan and political leaders Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh "is not not doctored or tampered with", the Delhi police had told a court.
