HC likely to pronounce verdict on Virbhadra’s plea in money laundering case tomorrow
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court is likely to pronounce tomorrow its verdict on the plea of Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and others seeking quashing of a money laundering case against them.
The arguments in the case have been heard by Justice R K Guaba, who is expected to give his order.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had earlier summoned 83- year-old Singh, his wife Pratibha Singh and son Vikramaditya Singh for questioning in this regard.
The ED had in September 2015 lodged the case against the chief minister and others under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after taking cognisance of a criminal complaint filed by the CBI.
The CBI had filed a charge sheet on March 31, hours after the high court refused to quash the FIR lodged against Singh and his wife in the disproportionate assets case.
It has also attached assets worth about Rs 14 crore in this case under the PMLA.
