Himachal Pradesh high court on Wednesday posted the petitions filed by chief minister Virbhadra Singh and his family members challenging an order of income tax commissioner, Shimla, to transfer the cases relating to investigations into their income tax returns to Chandigarh for September 24.


Vide its earlier orders dated August 4; the high court had stayed the orders of the income tax commissioner to transfer the cases.

A division bench comprising chief justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir and justice Tarlok Singh Chauhan passed these orders on the petitions filed by Virbhadra Singh and his family members.

Virbhadra Singh, his wife Pratibha Singh, son Vikramaditya Singh, daughter Aprajita Kumari, one Anand Chauhan (caretaker of Virbhadra's orchards), Chunni Lal Chauhan (proprietor of M/s Universal Apples) had challenged the orders to transfer their cases on the ground of conducting coordinated and joint investigation in all cases. They have stated that the coordinated and joint investigation of all cases can be done in Shimla also and there was no need to transfer the cases to Chandigarh.
