The CBI has filed a case against former Uttarakhand CM Harish Rawat in connection with a 2016 sting video that showed him negotiating a deal to buy the support of rebel MLAs.
The Uttarakhand HC had in September last week given a go-ahead to the agency to register a case against Rawat after it gave a report in a sealed cover based on its findings.
Other than Harish Rawat, the CBI has named former cabinet minister in Uttarakhand government - Harak Singh Rawat and Umesh Kumar in its FIR registered for prevention of corruption act.
