Fake arms deal case: Delhi Court to pronounce sentence on Laxman

New Delhi , Sat, 28 Apr 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Apr 28 (ANI): A Delhi Court will on Saturday pronounce quantum of sentence for former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Bangaru Laxman in connection with a fake bribery case in 2000.

In a huge embarrassment for the BJP, Laxman was earlier on Friday convicted for accepting Rs one lakh as bribe from a fake arms dealer in a fictitious deal eleven years ago.

Additional Sessions Judge Kanwal Jeet Arora convicted Laxman for accepting a bribe from fake arms dealers with the promise that he would 'influence' the Defence Ministry to award them a contract for the Army.

72-year-old Laxman, a former Union minister, was caught on camera in a sting operation in his chamber in the party headquarters.

He had to quit as president shortly after the sting expose, which created a huge political storm. (ANI)
