Record summoned in Tota ‘graft’ case

The Punjab and Haryana High Court today summoned the record pertaining to the corruption case in which former agriculture minister Tota Singh was convicted by a trial court. The High Court, in May, had admitted an appeal filed by Tota against his conviction in a corruption case. The court had also issued notice to Punjab vigilance on Tota's plea for bail in the case. A special court of Mohali had sentenced Tota to one-year rigorous imprisonment on May 5 for misusing the official car during his previous tenure as state education minister from 1997 to 2002. In his appeal, Tota Singh had pleaded that he was given a private vehicle with unlimited fuel and there was no need for him to misuse the official car. The minister had also submitted that the lower court, in its judgment, had cast serious aspersions on the investigating agency. He had submitted that he was falsely implicated in the case.
