Supreme Court To Hear Rafale fighter jet case and Rahul Gandhi Contempt Pleas Together On May 10.

The Supreme Court said it would hear the pleas seeking review of its verdict on the Rafale fighter jet case and the contempt petition against Congress President Rahul Gandhi for allegedly attributing some remarks to it, together on May 10. A special bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that the petitions seeking review of its earlier verdict would come up for hearing on May 10.

The bench, also comprising Justices SK Kaul and KM Joseph, expressed surprise as to how the review pleas and the contempt petition against Gandhi were listed separately on different dates when it had earlier ordered that both the cases will be heard together. “We are little perplexed that the two cases are listed on two different dates when the order was that these matters will be heard together,

“We are little perplexed that the two cases are listed on two different dates when the order was that these matters will be heard together,” the bench said. During the brief hearing, advocate Prashant Bhushan told the bench that he would argue the review pleas as well as an application seeking production of certain documents. He said the court should allow his co-petitioner and former Union minister Arun Shourie to argue a separate application seeking perjury action against unknown government servants for allegedly misleading the court during the Rafale case hearing earlier.
