SC to deliver verdict on Rafale review petitions tomorrow

The Supreme Court will pronounce the verdict on Rafale case tomorrow. The three-judge bench comprising of CJI Gogoi, Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and KM Joseph will be pronouncing judgment.

In May 2019, the three-judge bench had reserved verdict in the petition seeking review of the December 14 judgment which had declined to order a probe into the alleged corruption in the deal to procure 36 Rafale aircraft from French company Dassault Aviation.

Also, the Court had reserved orders in the contempt petition filed by BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi against Congress President Rahul Gandhi for remarking that Supreme Court had found “chowkidar chor hain” in its April 10 verdict in Rafale preliminary objections.

The Court is expected to pronounce orders on the contempt petition tomorrow.
