NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court will on Friday hear a petition filed against Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh in connection with a disproportionate assets and money laundering case. 
 
In October, a special court directed the Enforcement Directorate to supply certain documents to LIC agent Anand Chauhan, an accused charge sheeted in the case.
 
Special Judge Vinod Kumar directed the probe agency to hand over the documents which were filed along with the final report in the case. 
 
In September, the Enforcement Directorate filed charge sheet against LIC agent Anand Chauhan in a money laundering case involving Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and others.
 
A Delhi court earlier on August 20 dismissed Chauhan's bail petition.        
 
Chauhan was arrested on July 9 in Chandigarh by the Enforcement Directorate after he did not cooperate with the agency.
 
Chauhan was arrested under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), as he was instrumental in investing Rs. five crores in LIC polices in the name of the Chief Minister's family members including his wife and children.
