The Delhi High Court Wednesday declined to grant interim stay on the money laundering proceedings initiated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) against Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh and others, observing that there ‘could not be a blanket order’.
The bench of Justice Pratibha Rani also issued a notice to the ED seeking its response before May 31 on Singh’s plea seeking stay on the proceedings and quashing of the money laundering case against him.
