Herald case: Court asks Sonia, Rahul to reply on Swamy's plea

A Delhi court on Saturday granted three weeks' time to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, its vice-president Rahul Gandhi and four others to respond on a plea of Subramanian Swamy seeking certain documents from the party in the National Herald case.

Metropolitan Magistrate Lovleen gave time till July 22 to them after their counsel submitted that they have not received a copy of the application of Swamy, who has filed a private criminal complaint.
The court considered the plea of the Congress leaders and directed Swamy to hand them over a copy of the application. Swamy, in his complaint, has accused the Gandhis and others of conspiring to cheat and misappropriate funds by paying just Rs 50 lakh through which the Young Indian Pvt Ltd (YI) obtained the right to recover Rs 90.25 crore that the Associate Journals Limited (AJL) owed to the Congress. The Gandhis and the other accused –AICC members Motilal Vora and Oscar Fernandes and Suman Dubey and Sam Pitroda –have denied the allegations levelled against them.
