A special court has fixed February 8 for scrutiny of documents in a money laundering case involving Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh in which LIC agent Anand Chauhan has been chargesheeted.
“Advocate for the accused seeks one more adjournment for scrutinising the documents. Request allowed. Put up the matter for further scrutiny of the documents on February 8, 2017,” Special Judge Vinod Kumar said.
The court had on September 7 last year taken cognisance of the charge sheet filed against Chauhan,, while asking the Enforcement Directorate to provide him a copy of the final report and other documents.
The charge sheet was filed for offences under sections 3 (money-laundering) and 4 (punishment for the offence) of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Act.
Chauhan was arrested from Chandigarh on July 9 last year under the provisions of PMLA on the grounds that he was allegedly not cooperating with the probe.
