Arguments in disproportionate case against Virbhadra, others on April 9,10

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday fixed April 9 and 10 for arguments in connection with money laundering charges against former Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and others in an alleged disproportionate assets case.

Special Judge Arun Bhardwaj asked the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to provide the copy of deficient documents to the accused.

Advocates Naveen Kumar Matta and Nitesh Rana, counsels of ED, assured the court to supply the soft copies of all the deficient documents as soon as possible.

Virbhadra’s wife Pratibha Singh and son Vikramaditya along with others are on regular bail in connection with the case.

The ED has alleged that Virbhadra used “bogus entries” to illegally transfer the money.

The investigative agency filed a case based on the CBI’s FIR which accused Singh and his kind of accumulating assets when he was serving as the Union Minister of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises under the UPA government in 2011.

As per the ED, the assets were purchased in the name of Singh’s close family members and were found to be disproportionate to his known sources of income.
