Rafale deal: No debate on pricing for now, Supreme Court says

The Supreme Court on Wednesday resumed its hearing on pleas seeking a court-monitored probe into the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets from France.

A bench comprising of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices SK Kaul and KM Joseph, while hearing the petitioners, said that there is no question of a debate on the pricing of Rafale deal in court till it comes to the conclusion that the pricing information is to be brought in the public domain.

The SC bench also asked AG KK Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, whether an IAF officer was present in the court. It said it would like to interact with an IAF official as the matter is related to the Indian Air Force.

Meanwhile, the SC bench went for a lunch break and will resume the hearing in the afternoon.  Read More
