Delhi Court Lists Hearing In National Herald Case For October 21

In 2018, the Delhi High Court asked Associated Journals Limited to vacate the premises.

New Delhi:

A Delhi court today deferred the hearing in the National Herald case after both the sides sought adjournment into the matter.

Several Congress leaders including Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are accused in the case.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal posted the matter for hearing on October 21.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, who is the complainant in the case, was scheduled to be cross-examined today.

He was also cross-examined on August 30 by Advocate RS Cheema, the counsel of Congress leaders.

The office-bearers of the Congress party were "cheats" and the workers were the victims of the cheating, Mr Swamy had said in a reply to a question asked by the counsel.

Mr Swamy had filed the case in 2012 accusing Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and others of allegedly conspiring to cheat and misappropriate funds.

The BJP lawmaker had also stated that the Congress party granted an interest-free loan of Rs 90.25 crore to Associated Journals Limited, owner of the National Herald newspaper.
