NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Friday sought a response from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government over a plea seeking a CBI probe in alleged bribery case against Food and Supplies Minister Imran Hussain.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led government told the High Court it needs some time to file a status report on the corruption charges levelled against Hussain.

The case will be next heard on July 27.

The Congress Party had in February alleged that Hussain’s staffer had been caught on camera demanding bribe on his behalf.

The grand old party had demanded immediate resignation of the Delhi Minister, alleging a sting operation that has purportedly revealed a bribe of Rs. 30 lakh was demanded by a person for regularising an illegal construction in Ballimaran area of north Delhi on his behalf, a charge denied by the AAP leader.
