New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation today quizzed Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat in connection with the sting operation showing him trying to strike a deal with a journalist to retain the support of the rebel Congress MLAs who had put his Government in jeopardy.

The Uttarakhand Chief Minister was grilled at the CBI headquarters here after the Central Government’s apex investigating agency had rejected the state government’s notification withdrawing approval for probe given during President’s Rule. Even the Uttarakhand High Court refused to stay the CBI probe on Rawat’s request.
