Justice Sunil Gaur dismissed their pleas which means they will have to appear before the trial court in the case.

Apart from the Gandhis, the court also dismissed the pleas of Congress treasurer Motilal Vora, family friend Suman Dubey and party leader Oscar Fernandes who had moved the high court for quashing of summons to them by a trial court.

On June 26, the trial court issued summons to the Congress leaders on Swamy’s complaint about “cheating” in the acquisition of AJL by YIL – “a firm in which Sonia and Rahul Gandhi each own a 38 percent stake”.
