The Himachal Pradesh High Court on Thursday (October 1) restrained CBI from arresting Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his wife Pratibha Singh in connection with the disproportionate assets case but allowed the enquiry in the matter to proceed. Admitting the petition of Virbhadra Singh against whom an FIR was registered by CBI last week, a division bench of High Court comprising justices Rajiv Sharma and Sureshwar Thakur, also directed CBI to keep the court informed before interrogating the couple and fixed the next hearing on November 18. The court said the inquiry in the case will continue. The chief minister had filed a petition in the court yesterday pleading that the raids on his private residence Holley Lodge and other premises were conducted with “malafide intentions and political vendetta” by the central investigating agency. Senior Supreme Court lawyer and former Union Minister Kapil Sibal appeared for the chief minister. Singh in his petition alleged that the CBI had overstepped its jurisdiction in filing the case and questioned how the CBI could raid his premises when the case was already pending in the Delhi HC and also before the Income Tax tribunal and other Income tax authorities, where all documents relating to his returns have been submitted.
