Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister likely to appear before Enforcement Directorate


New Delhi: As per the information given by the official, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh will be presenting himself before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in relation to the money laundering case.

Virbhadra Singh will appear before the investigating officer at the ED Headquarters in New Delhi. “We hope that he (Singh) will be present at the ED Headquarters here as we haven’t received any information from his office so far,” ED spokesperson Anil Rawal told media.

The ED had summoned Singh in the money laundering case on April 18 and had said that he must appear before it on April 20. Earlier the ED had summoned him on April 13. But he failed.

The senior Congress leader had earlier allegedly avoided summons to get his statement recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). He is said to have excused himself by referring to his official commitments.
