ED attachment order to continue against Virbhadra’s kin: HC
The Delhi high court on Tuesday said the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) provisional order of attaching some assets of Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh’s two children in a money-laundering case would continue but all subsequent proceedings against them would remain stayed.
“In the meantime, we consider it appropriate to stay all further proceedings pursuant to the impugned order (of ED) of provisional attachment so far as the petitioners herein are concerned. However, the impugned attachment shall continue,” a Bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath said.
The interim order came on a petition filed by Virbhadra’s daughter Aparajita Kumari and son Vikramaditya Singh against the March 23 provisional attachment order passed by the ED.
