The Himachal Pradesh high court on Tuesday issued a notice to BJP MP from Shimla Virender Kashyap on a petition filed by RTI activist Dev Ashish Bhattacharya for quashing a police inquiry report giving a clean chit to him after he was allegedly caught accepting cash on camera and promising favours during a sting operation carried out by a news channel.

The petitioner has alleged that the state government inquiry in 2010 was not fair and was aimed at hushing up the matter. He also sought a fresh, free and fair inquiry into the case.

Sources said a video CD was in circulation in January 2010 in which Kashyap was seen accepting bribe from a private party for helping it in securing permission for setting up an educational institution in the state.
