 Disproportionate assets case: Himachal CM seeks FIR copy

By NewsGram staff writer

New Delhi: Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh sought a copy of the first information report (FIR) in a disproportionate assets case lodged against him from a Delhi court on Monday.

Virbhadra Singh filed an application before Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge SC Rajan. The court will hear the plea later in the day.

In June, the CBI initiated a preliminary inquiry against Virbhadra Singh and his family over allegations of corruption and acquiring assets disproportionate to their known sources of income during his tenure as the union steel minister.

“The FIR was registered when Virbhadra Singh was union steel minister. There was corruption and this has been proved now. He has no right to continue. He should resign,” union Health Minister JP Nadda said earlier.

The case was registered on September 23 under the Prevention of Corruption Act against the former union minister, his wife Pratibha Singh, LIC agent Anand Chauhan and an associate, Chunnilal.

The CBI raided Virbhadra Singh’s private residence, Holly Lodge, located in Jakhu Hills in Shimla, on September 26. At that time, the chief minister and his family were not at home. They were celebrating his daughter’s wedding elsewhere.
