Voice is mine, but tapes spliced: Amar Singh

New Delhi: A day after the Supreme Court lifted a gag order on his tapped telephonic conversations, former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Thursday admitted that the tapes had his voice but alleged a cut and paste job.
"I don't say it was not my voice. But if you are tapping someone's phone for over an year, the conversations can be put in other context. The tapes are spliced, it is a cut and paste job," Amar Singh told reporters.
He, however, said that he will not file any case against any company for the phone tapping.
Amar Singh, a Rajya Sabha MP, filed the petition in 2006 after some of his telephonic conversations were illegally tapped and were in circulation.
He moved the apex court and got a restraint order against their publication in media.
The Supreme Court, however, rejected the plea Wednesday and allowed publication of the tapes.
Amar Singh refused to comment on the tape in which allegedly he is reportedly heard talking to, among others, Bollywood actresses. He said: "It's a personnel matter, I will answer my wife on this."
