U’khand: CBI files probe report in case against Harish Rawat

Dehradun: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a probe report in the High Court here in a 2016 case of horse-trading against former Chief Minister Harish Rawat.

The Uttarakhand High Court has already set September 20 as the next date for the hearing in the matter.

In a 2016 sting operation, the CWC member and Congress general secretary can be seen allegedly talking to a journalist for bringing nine rebel MLAs back to Congress’ fold.

Rawat, meanwhile, has denied any involvement in the case and has termed it a conspiracy to frame him.

“Hard times lie ahead of me, there are some forces which want to destroy me. But I assure you that I will not break but would rather go down fighting,” he said.
