DA case: SC issues notice to Virbhadra Singh

New Delhi, Oct.26 : The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his wife on the CBI’s plea against the High Court order granting him relief in an alleged disproportionate assets case.

The apex court will hear the CBI’s plea on November 5.

The CBI had filed a transfer petition and a special leave petition in the apex court, seeking transfer of the case against Singh from Himachal Pradesh to Delhi and suspension of the High Court’s order.

The Himachal Pradesh High Court had on October 1 restrained the CBI from arresting Singh and his wife in the DA case, but had allowed the enquiry in the matter to proceed. (ANI)
