CBI registers case against former Uttarakhand CM, Harish Rawat for alleged horse-trading of MLAs

CBI has registered a case
against former Uttarakhand
Chief Minister, Harish Rawat
and others in connection with
a sting operation related to
alleged horse-trading of
MLAS

In 2016, a sting video had
come to fore in which Mr
Rawat was allegedly shown
negotiating a horse-trading
deal with rebel MLAs to bring
them back into the Congress
fold.

Uttarakhand was under the
President’s rule at that time.
Earlier, the Uttarakhand High
Court had allowed the CBI to
register a case against
Harish Rawat.
