The Supreme Court on Friday quashed an FIR against BJP MP Anurag Thakur, former Himachal Pradesh chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and others in a case related to alleged irregularities.

The case pertains to alleged irregularities in granting land on lease for construction of the Dharamshala cricket stadium. 

The case was being heard by Justices A K Sikri, Ashok Bhushan and Ajay Rastogi, who said: "we allow the appeal. FIR registered is quashed".

Thakur, Dhumal and Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association had challenged the high court order refusing to quash the FIR registered during the then Vir Bhadra Singh government in the state.
