ED summons Himachal CM in money laundering case

Shimla, Nov 27 (IANS) The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has sent a notice to Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh in a money laundering case, officials said on Friday.

The notice has to be responded to by the first week of December, they said

In an informal meeting with media persons here, the chief minister said that since he would be busy with the winter session of the state assembly at Dharamsala at that time, the notice would be replied to by his lawyers.

He said the matter on which the ED and the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) had lodged first information reports were already clear. He said he had got a clean chit earlier on this issue.

“I sometimes feel proud that the entire central government is conspiring against me in a case which has been already cleared,” he said.
