New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate today raided the residence of Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh in Shimla in connection with a disproportionate assets case against him.

The officials, with vehicles of Chandigarh and Punjab registration numbers, reached Singh's private residence, Holly Lodge, located in Jakhu hills in the morning.

"Searches were conducted at 11 locations in Himachal Pradesh and Delhi," a CBI officer in New Delhi said.

Singh and his family were not at home when the team reached their residence.

The CBI had on June 18 initiated a preliminary inquiry against Singh and his family over allegations of corruption and acquiring disproportionate assets during his tenure as Union Steel Minister.

Singh had, however, refuted the allegations.

The CBI restarted the preliminary inquiry on the basis of the income tax department order that said the agricultural income of Singh and his family dramatically increased in the revised return, which was an apparent attempt to justify the investments made in the purchase of insurance policies worth over Rs 6.1 crore.
