New Delhi, April 24: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh’s wife Pratibha Singh on Monday told the court that the CBI did not follow proper procedure while conducting a probe into a disproportiote assets case against her and others. Pratibha’s defence counsel told Special Judge Virender Kumar Goyal that as per the Delhi High Court guidelines, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) should have sought permission from the Himachal Pradesh government before conducting an investigation against her and others in the case. The counsel requested the court to consider whether the investigating agency followed the high court guidelines or not before taking cognisance of the chargesheet. “In view of the aforesaid facts and circumstances, it is most respectfully prayed that order dated March 31, 2017 passed by the high court be complied with by expressly deciding as to whether the material relied upon by the CBI in instant chargesheet, which has been collected during investigation in Himachal Pradesh without taking approval or permission of the government of Himachal Pradesh, be considered for the purpose of cognizance,” the plea filed by Pratibha Singh stated.
