Himachal CM Fails to Keep ED Date; Agency Issues Fresh Summons

The CBI chargesheet alleged that both Singh and his wife had amassed Rs 10 cr in disproportionate assets.

The ED has issued fresh summons to Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh in a money laundering case after he failed to visit the ED office on Thursday.

The ED action comes close on the heels of the CBI filing a chargesheet against him and his wife and others for allegedly amassing assets worth around ₹10 crore disproportionate to their known sources of income.

Officials said the agency issued fresh summons to Singh as it wants to record his statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
