Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, who is at the helm for a record sixth innings, finds himself enmeshed in legal wrangles in at least four cases in barely three months.
Most of the cases relate to allegations of corruption against him. Virbhadra Singh has, however, denied any wrongdoing during all his tenures.
The latest is the ordering of a retrial in a criminal defamation case pending against him for over eight years.
The Himachal Pradesh High Court Friday ordered the retrial in the defamation suit filed by state Subordinate Services Selection Board former chairman S.M. Katwal.
Hearing the petition, Justice D.C. Chaudhary directed the judicial magistrate in Una town for retrial.
