The Patiala House Court, on 27 August, issued a notice to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, vice-president Rahul Gandhi and five others on BJP leader Subramanian Swamy's plea seeking documents from Congress and others in the National Herald case.
Last month, Swamy had told a Delhi court that he would file an application to summon the documents pertaining to the case.
In a statement, Swamy had said, "There is no way I can be restricted from getting these copies (of document) again. I will file a complete application for summoning of documents. The order (of high court) does not say that these documents should be returned. The high court says I can move fresh application. I will move application for summoning of documents as permitted by high court," The Indian Express reported.
Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, party leaders Motilal Vora, Oscar Fernandes, Suman Dubey, Sam Pitroda and Young Indian Pvt Ltd (YI) are accused in the case filed by Swamy.
Swamy has accused them of misappropriating funds and allegedly conspiring to cheat by just paying Rs 50 lakh by which YI obtained the right to recover Rs 90.25 crore which Associated Journals Pvt Ltd (AJL) owed to the Congress party.
All the accused have denied the allegations levelled against them by Swamy.
