The Himachal Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau on Friday filed a charge sheet against the former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and 15 other office bearers of Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association for their alleged actions that wrongly benefited the cricket association headed by his son Anurag Thakur.

They have been charged under various Sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act.

The charge sheet was filed in a special court of Dharamsala in Kangra district after the High Court dismissed HPCA’s petition to quash the FIR against it.
