Shimla March, 31; A Delhi Court on Saturday will continue hearing against Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh in the Disproportionate Assets (DA) case. Earlier on Friday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a chargesheet in the case. The chargesheet also contains the name of Singh’s wife Pratibha along with others, bringing the total upto nine. Life Insurance Corporation agent Anand Chauhan, his associate Chunni Lal, Joginder Singh Ghalta, Prem Raj, Lawan Kumar Roach, Vakamullah Chandrashekhra and Ram Prakash Bhatia have been named in the chargesheet.
The fresh blow to the Chief Minister comes after the Delhi High Court dismissed his plea challenging the FIR filed by the CBI in the Disproportionate Assets case.
The CBI had registered an FIR for alleged property of Rs. six crore amassed between 2009-12 during Virbhadra’s tenure as the union steel minister.
