New Delhi: A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Monday granted bail to all accused including Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and his wife in the disproportionate assets matter.
Singh has to furnish Rs. one lakh personal bond and surety of same amount. He cannot leave the country without the court's permission.
He has to submit his passport. The next hearing in the matter is on July 27.
A Delhi Court earlier in the day had reserved its order on the bail plea of all the accused in the DA case, including Singh.
The CBI has opposed the bail plea of Singh.
Opposing the bail the CBI said, "Singh cannot be spared as he is the king of the state and is involved in such corrupt practices."
CBI counsel further said that the Virbhadra's medical issues are common for an old aged man and should not be considered.
