New Delhi, April 20

Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) here in connection with a money laundering case registered against him and others. He arrived at the agency’s office here in his official car with a covered beacon around 12 noon.

Sporting his trademark ‘Himachali topi’, the CM did not interact with mediapersons on the spot and was seen raising his fist in the air and heard reciting some lines of a patriotic poem: “Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamare dil mein hain, dekhna hai zor kitna baju e qaatil mein hai.”

The agency has summoned Singh 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. —PTI
