Court allows Swamy’s plea for documents in National Herald case

New Delhi, Jan 11 (IANS) A court here on Monday allowed the plea of Bhartiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy seeking some documents to support his National Herald case against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi.

Metropolitan magistrate Lovleen allowed the plea of Swamy seeking some documents from various ministries and other agencies.

In his application, Swamy has sought documents in regard to the company, the Associated Journals Limited, Herald House from ministries of finance, urban development, and corporate affairs, the Delhi Development Authority and the registrar of companies.

He told the court that these documents are necessary for the purpose of the trial and other proceedings.

The court last month granted bail to Gandhis after they appeared before it.

On June 26, 2014, the trial court issued summons to the Congress leaders on Swamy’s complaint about “cheating” in the acquisition of Associated Journals Ltd., which published the National Herald newspaper, by Young India Ltd., “a firm in which Sonia and Rahul Gandhi each own a 38 percent stake”.

Congress leaders Motilal Vora, and Oscar Fernandes, family friend Suman Dubey and technocrat Sam Pitroda were also named as accused in the case.

The Delhi High Court last month dismissed the plea of the Gandhis to quash the summons issued to them by the trial court on Swamy’s complaint.
