Supreme Court dismisses PIL on Rahul Gandhi's citizenship row

News Agencies | Updated on: 30 November 2015, 13:54 IST

The Supreme Court, on 30 November, dismissed a plea seeking a direction to CBI to register a case against Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for allegedly declaring himself as a British national before company law authorities.


A bench comprising Chief Justice HL Dattu and Justice Amitava Roy questioned the "authenticity of the document" attached with the PIL and the manner in which the papers were procured.


"Can we start making roving inquiries," the bench asked while turning the petition as "frivolous".


Earlier the apex court had refused urgent hearing on a plea filed by lawyer ML Sharma.


Recently, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has alleged that the Congress Vice President has claimed himself to be a British national before the authorities in connection with incorporation of a firm.
