Himachal CM Virbhadra Singh appears before CBI over graft charges

New Delhi : Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh on Thursday appeared before the Central Bureau Investigation (CBI) in connection with alleged disproportionate assets case.

On September 26 last year, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had searched the Chief Minister’s residence and 10 other places in connection with the case.

Later, the ED conducted raids and summoned Singh for questioning in Delhi after the registration of the case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

However, the Delhi High Court asked the Enforcement Directorate to submit all the documents in a sealed cover, related to the search.

Singh had earlier approached the court seeking directions to the ED to provide him with the reasons on the basis of which search and seizure was carried out at his premises in the case. (ANI)
