Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Thursday appeared before a Delhi court ten minutes after a bailable warrant was issued against him for not presenting himself before it in a two-year-old cheating case registered by him.

Taking exception to his continuous non-appearance in court

to depose before it, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaweri Baweja issued bailable warrant for Rs 10,000 against Singh but the order was recalled when Singh personally appeared in the court after ten minutes.

The court accepted the plea of Singh, who failed to depose in the matter on five occasions, to recall the warrant but directed him to appear before it on the next date of hearing on July 13.

Earlier, the court on, February 20, had imposed a cost of Rs 5,000 on the Rajya Sabha MP for his failure to depose before the judge.

The case pertains to a complaint filed by Singh against one Barun Kumar Verma in June 4, 2007 alleging he tried to extort money from him in connection with hearing of a case in the Supreme Court relating to SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav.
