The CBI has filed an FIR against former Uttarakhand CM Harish Rawat and his then Cabinet colleague Harak Singh Rawat, now a member of the state’s BJP-led government, for alleged attempts at horse-trading in 2016, which was caught on tape by an editor of a news channel, officials said on Wednesday.

The agency had conducted a preliminary inquiry into the alleged horse-trading attempt on March 23, 2016, when the state was under President’s rule. It sent a tape with the purported video to a forensic lab in Gujarat, which opined that the recording was “genuine” and there was no evidence of any “addition/deletion/insertion/tampering/morphing” in the video files. The editor of a Noida-based channel was booked too. — PTI
