HC stays summons against Sonia and Rahul till disposal of appeals

The Delhi High Court on Monday extended the stay on the trial court order summoning Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and three others in the National Herald case till the final disposal of their appeals against their summons.

Justice VP Vaish extended the interim order after lawyers appearing for the Gandhis and others sought adjournment in the matter.

However, the court fixed the matter for January 12, 2015, from which date it will hear the arguments
on their appeals on “day-to-day basis”.

“August 6 order (interim stay on trial court’s direction) shall continue till final disposal of the petitions.
The court will hear the matter on day-to-day basis from January 12. The appeals will be regularly heard by this court. The matter will be listed as item number 1,” the judge said.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, however, opposed the petitioners move, saying “no excuse should be permitted to them (Sonia and others) from next date of hearing”.
