Bhajan Lal caught by spy cam?

Mid Day reports that "[t]hree explicit CDs allegedly showing [Bhajan] Lal at an evening of merriment in a Mumbai dance bar during the last Maharashtra elections have made it to the office of Congress president Sonia Gandhi." Lal, a candidate for the chief minister's post in Haryana, reportedly goes "slow on the drinks" as the raunchy Bollywood song, Choli ke Peechhe, plays in the background.

The newspaper spoke to Lal, and he denied being the person on the tapes. The conversation ended when Lal hung up after saying: "Yeh sab bakwas hai. Chhapna mat." ("All this is nonsense, don't print it.")

Maybe he could have said that inspired by Suketu Mehta, he was doing some research for a book. Um, or maybe not.
