Herald case: Cong submits balance-sheet in court
The Indian National Congress (INC) on Friday submitted its balance-sheet for the year 2010-11 in a sealed cover before a Delhi court in compliance with its order in the National Herald case, in which Congress President Sonia Gandhi, her son Rahul Gandhi and five others are accused.
Besides the Congress, Associated Journals Pvt (AJL) also submitted in a sealed cover its balance-sheet for the same assessment year before Metropolitan Magistrate Lovleen.
Both Congress and AJL requested the court that “the documents may not be opened or brought on record without hearing the counsel for applicant”.
They said the summoned documents were already on court’s record and “the prayer (by complainant Subramanian Swamy) for summoning the documents was made either by sheer oversight or just to publicise the issue”.
“Nonetheless, the applicants (Congress and AJL) in deference to the direction of this court is producing the document in a sealed cover,” they said in their separate pleas moved in the court.
