The Bombay High Court was informed on Friday that the Singapore High Commission,through a diplomatic note,had informed the External Affairs Ministry that the information pertaining to the entry permit and ID of Nationalist Congress Party MP Supriya Sule is confidential. The High Commission,however,stated that the information regarding the property owned by her could be tracked on a government website.

The court had earlier issued a letter of request to a consular officer to produce five documents sought by Mrinalini Kakde,who had challenged Sule’s election to the Lok Sabha in 2009,on the grounds that she had purchased property in Singapore and attained citizenship of the country.

Kakde’s lawyer Vaibhav Parshurami told the court that he does not want to lead any more evidence in the case.

Adjourning the case for two weeks,the court said Sule’s lawyers should inform the court whether or not they want her or any other witnesses in the case to be examined in court. The final arguments in the case will proceed if no more witnesses are required to be examined.
