Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh's wife Pratibha on Monday withdrawn her plea alleging CBI had not obtained permission from state govt to obtain documents for chargesheet. The Patiala House Court is likely to take cognizance of the chargesheet filed by the CBI on 3rd May.
Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his wife were charge-sheeted by the CBI in a special court in a disproportionate assets case, hours after the Delhi High Court had refused to quash the FIR and lifted the stay on their arrest.
The high court, which had rubbished the Chief Ministerâ€™s claim that the FIR is the result of any â€œpolitical vendettaâ€, had paved the way for criminal proceedings which were stalled due to the October 1, 2015 order of the Himachal Pradesh High Court restraining the CBI from arresting, interrogating and filing the charge sheet against the accused.
