Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, accused in a money laundering case, arrives to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in New Delhi on Thursday.

New Delhi, April 20 (PTI): Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh on Thursday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) here in connection with a money laundering case registered against him and others.
The agency has summoned Singh in order to record his statement in this case and also to confront him with some documents it has seized and recovered in this case of disproportionate assets.
The CM, last week, had also sent a communication to the agency stating his reasons for not being able to appear before it all this while and had sought a new date from it, after which the new summons were issued for today.
The ED had yesterday refused to give any assurance in the Delhi High Court that it will not arrest Singh when he appears before it. The submission was made before Justice R K Gauba by the ED during the hearing of Singh’s plea for quashing of the money laundering proceedings against him.
The ED summons have come close on the heels of filing of a charge sheet by the CBI against Singh, his wife and others for allegedly amassing assets worth around Rs 10 crore disproportionate to their known sources of income.
