Former Himachal Pradesh CM’s son Vikramaditya Singh gets bail in money laundering case


New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday gave bail to Himachal Pradesh Congress leader Vikramaditya Singh in a money laundering case.

Special judge Arvind Kumar asked Vikramaditya, son of former Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh, on a personal bond of Rs 50,000 and one surety of the same amount. The court told him that he will not leave country without its prior permission and he will not try to influence any witness in the case.

Special public prosecutors N K Matta and Nitesh Rana appearing for Enforcement Directorate (ED) opposed the bail application, saying he may misuse the liberty. The court has now put up the matter for further hearing on September 19.

The court had on July 24 summoned Vikramaditya and others to appear before it on August 27 in a money laundering case. The court was considering a charge sheet filed by the ED on July 21 against Vikramaditya in the money laundering case, which also allegedly involves Virbhadra.
