Simla (Himachal Pradesh), Mar.23 (ANI): Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh on Wednesday dubbed the attachment of the property of the Himachal Pradesh State Youth Congress president Vikramaditya Singh in New Delhi by the Enforcement Directorate as an ‘uncalled action’ and alleged that it was a suo-motto action conducted by the organisation under the ‘political pressure of their political bosses’.
“The attachment of the property of the Himachal Pradesh State Youth Cong president Vikramaditya Singh in Delhi by the Enforcement Directorate was an action un-called for as it wasn’t being done by courts order but was suo-motto action of the ED under political pressure of their political bosses,” Singh said.
ED has attached assets of Virbhadra Singh worth Rs. 8 crores in a money laundering case.
A week ago, the Delhi High Court had refused to grant a stay on the proceedings initiated by the ED against him.
The ED had last year registered a money laundering case against Virbhadra and others under provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after taking cognisance of a criminal complaint filed by the CBI in this regard. (ANI)
