Speaking to reporters,Singh apologised for his son’s behaviour. His son Narendra had made an obscene gesture at the media that had gathered outside their house on Friday. “I am not absconding. I have done nothing wrong. I will fight the case legally,” Singh said,adding “I do not own all the properties being shown in my name. What my son did was wrong and I apologise on his behalf.” Meanwhile,Singh lost the Z category security cover granted to him by the government.
