The Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed the CBI and the Income Tax department to file status reports of their investigation into the disproportionate assets case against Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh. Both CBI and the I-T department were told to file the reports in a sealed cover within four weeks.

ASG Sanjay Jain, appearing for the I-T Department, told the court that “trail of money” was “also in Delhi” as there was a “farmhouse purchased in Delhi using the tainted money”.

Amicus Curiae Sidharth Aggarwal, however, questioned the delay in completion of the Preliminary Enquiry (PE) by the CBI.

“We will give a reply within four weeks if further monitoring is required,” said ASG Maninder Singh, while appearing on behalf of the CBI.

The court dismissed objections over its jurisdiction saying it had decided to take up the case suo motu.
