A chargesheet is likely to be filed soon against Virbhadra Singh and his wife Pratibha Singh in the graft case registered against the couple in July last year, State Vigilance and Anti-corruption Bureau said on Friday.

"The chargesheet in the CD case is likely to be submitted in the court by the end of this month or early next month," State Vigilance and Anti-corruption Bureau Director General D S Manhas said.

Singh has replied to the questionnaire sent by the bureau in connection with the case but further clarification has been sought from him with regard to voices in the CD, he said.

An FIR was registered against the Union Steel Minister and his wife, a former MP, by the vigilance bureau last year on the basis of a CD released by former Congress minister Vijay Singh Mankotia in 2007 allegedly containing voices of Singh, his wife and a former bureaucrat late Mohinder Lal talking about bribe money around the year 1989.

Earlier, the Central Forensic Laboratory, Chandigarh, had confirmed the voice of Singh in the CD.
