High court dismisses plea of Himachal CM, Virbhadra Singh and others

03 Juillet 2017

Delhi High Court today dismissed a petition filed by Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and others seeking to quash a money laundering case filed by Enforcement Directorate (ED) under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).The ED has registered a case against Mr Singh, is wife Pratibha Singh, son Vikramaditya and another accused person Chunni Lal in September, 2015 and took cognizance of a criminal complaint filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

A chargesheet was filed by CBI on March 31, when the high court refused to quash the FIR lodged against the chief minister and his wife in the disproportionate assets case.

Now the Enforcement Directorate has summoned, Virbhadra Singh (83), his wife Pratibha Singh and son Vikramaditya Singh for further question, though no date has been set yet. Singh after getting bail had said, "It's a political vendetta". It has said that seeking a stay on the proceedings was "not maintainable" as the inquiry into the matter was at a preliminary stage. "His medical issues are common, so medical ground shouldn't considered".

Sanders says the White House is focused on the "end product" which she says is repealing and replacing the health care law. Sasse, meanwhile, said he would like to see a bill that would repeal Obamacare "with a delay".

The probe agency had alleged that Singh, while serving as Union minister, had invested huge amounts in purchasing Life Insurance Corp. of India (LIC) policies in his and his family members' names through LIC agent Anand Chauhan. He was arrested by the ED under provisions of the PMLA as he was allegedly not cooperating with the investigating officer of the case.

It has also attached assets worth about Rs14 crore in the case under the PMLA.
