Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Friday appeared before Delhi Police's Special Cell in connection with the phone-tapping issue.
He refrained from attacking the Congress party or its chief Sonia Gandhi.
"The Congress is not targeting me anymore and it is only a few leaders like Ambika Soni and Salman Khursheed and RJD chief Lalu Prasad who were demanding that the contents of the tape be made public," he said after a 90-minute appearance before the Joint Commissioner (Special Cell) Karnal Singh and DCP Ajay Kumar.
Apart from saying that one Rahul had told him that his telephone was being tapped at the "behest" of Sonia Gandhi and Ambika Soni, he did not attack her as he had done in the last two weeks ever since the controversy broke out.
On Thursday another Samajwadi Party leader Janeshwar Mishra had said he would not blame Sonia Gandhi or Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the telephone-tapping incident unless he had evidence.
Amar Singh told the Delhi Police that one Rahul had informed him that his phones were being tapped by the intelligence agencies as a part of a plan to "finish him."
