CBI files chargesheet against Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh


New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigatinon (CBI) filed chargesheets against Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, his wife Pratibha Singh, and others in the disproportionate assets case on Friday.

The Delhi High Court today dismissed a plea by Virbhadra Singh seeking the cancellation of an FIR registered by the CBI against him and his wife in a corruption case.

On September 23, 2016, the CBI had registered the case under the Prevention of Corruption Act against the Chief Minister, his wife Pratibha Singh, Life Insurance Corporation agent Anand Chauhan and an associate Chunni Lal.

The case was registered after a preliminary inquiry found that Virbhadra Singh, during his term as a Union minister from 2009 to 2012, allegedly accumulated assets worth Rs 6.03 crore, which were disproportionate to his known sources of income.
