Virbhadra PMLA case: ED provides documents to accused

The court earlier directed ED to provide the docs filed along with the final report in the case.

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate on Monday handed over certain documents to LIC agent Anand Chauhan, an accused chargesheeted in a money laundering case involving Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.

The papers were handed over to the accused on the direction of Special Judge Vinod Kumar that the documents filed along with the final report in the case be provided to him. The plea had been filed by Chauhan. The court has now put up the matter for further hearing on January.

The court had on September 7 taken cognisance on the chargesheet filed against Chauhan, who is currently in judicial custody, while asking ED to provide him a copy of the final report and other documents.

The chargesheet 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 under the provisions of PMLA on the grounds that he was allegedly not cooperating with the probe.
