BJP leaders Faggan Singh Kulaste, Ashok Argal and Mahabir Singh Bhagora created a sensation in July 2008, when they waved bundles of cash in the Lok Sabha, alleging that they had received a bribe to save the government after Left parties withdrew support over the India-U.S. civilian nuclear deal.
The court has now accepted their claim of being whistleblowers.
Singh, who had been accused of conspiring with his secretary to deliver Rs. 1 crore as bribe for the MPs, was also discharged after the court maintained that the allegations did not go "beyond the realm of suspicion."
Only one accused, Sanjeev Saxena, an alleged agent of Amar Singh, will stand trial under the Prevention of Corruption Act, the court said.
The Delhi Police, in a charge-sheet filed in 2011, had accused Amar Singh and BJP leader LK Advani's former aide Sudheendra Kulkarni of conspiring to bribe the MPs.
A Parliamentary panel which had investigated the bribery scandal had asked the police to register a case in 2009.
