No political vendetta in case against Virbhadra: HC

NEW DELHI: Delhi High Court today refused to quash the disproportionate assets case filed by CBI against Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his wife, saying there is no basis to claim that the FIR is the result of any “political vendetta”.

 

It also vacated the Himachal Pradesh High Court's October 1, 2015 interim order restraining CBI from arresting, interrogating or filing a charge sheet in the case without the court's permission.

 

“There is no factual basis brought on record to claim that the registration of the FIR against the petitioners (Singh and his wife) is actuated or legally or factually mala fide or that the registration of the FIR/ RC is a result of political vendetta,” Justice Vipin Sanghi said.

 

Following the order, the agency later in the day filed a charge sheet before the special court here against nine people including the 82-year-old Congress leader for alleged offences punishable under section 109 (abetment) of IPC and Prevention of Corruption Act.

 

The special court has now fixed the charge sheet, running into over 500 pages, for consideration for tomorrow. (AGENCIES)
