CBI rejects Singh's plea to be witness

Vijayanagara (Hospet) MLA Anand Singh, who was arrested on Thursday, reportedly requested the CBI officials to consider him as witness rather than as an accused.

However, the CBI officers have categorically rejected his pleas, said sources in the CBI. MLA will be in the CBI custody till October 26.  He told the officers that he would share vital information on the illegal export of iron ore. Yellapur MLA Shivaram Hebbar's son Vivek Hebbar was summoned by the CBI for interrogation in connection with the case. Vivek is MD of a logistics firm which is accused of transporting the ore illegally.
