Sonia Gandhi, Rahul To Present In Court In National Herald Case Today

News

New Delhi; Dec.19:  Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice-President Rahul Gandhi will appear in a trial court at the Patiala House Courts at 3 pm in Delhi in the National Herald case today. 

The two are among six people including other top Congress leaders and Gandhi family associates accused by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy of trying to illegally acquire real estate worth thousands of crores belonging to the now defunct newspaper National Herald.

After the court appearance, Mrs Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are likely to head to the party headquarters, 24 Akbar Road, where they might address the media.

Mr Swamy had filed the case in a local court in 2012, one year before he joined the BJP. The court had in 2014 issued summons to the Gandhis and others which they challenged in the Delhi High Court. 

Earlier this month, the High Court refused to stay the summons.
