Chief minister Virbhadra Singh on Saturday recorded statement in a criminal defamation case filed against former chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and his two sons, Anurag and Arun Thakur. The chief minister recorded his statement in the court of chief judicial magistrate Jyotsana S Rewal at Chakkar.

Virbhadra Singh had filed a defamation case in January this year against the then leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley, former chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and his two sons, Anurag and Arun Thakur. However, the chief minister had withdrawn the case against Jaitley after he was sworn in as union minister.


The chief minister had alleged that Dhumal and his sons had indulged in malicious propaganda against him and his family members through media.
