Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his wife on Wednesday appeared at Patiala House Court in Disproportionate Assets case.

The court adjourned the matter till October 31st after CBI informed that the Investigation Officer of the case was not present so it cannot hand over the documents. Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his wife Pratibha Singh had been already granted bail by a special court here in connection with a nearly Rs 10 crore disproportionate assets case.

Special Judge Virender Kumar Goyal had granted the relief to all the accused on a personal bond of Rs one lakh each and one surety of the like amount.

The court, however, had asked them not to leave the country without its prior permission.

Earlier in the day, the CBI had opposed the bail plea of the Chief Minister saying they may influence the witnesses and the ongoing probe in a disproportionate assets case against them.
