SC allows Defence Ministry to file affidavit in Rafale case


The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed the Defence Ministry to file an affidavit in the Rafale case after it sought permission for the same. The Centre’s advocate mentioned before a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi that the ministry wants to file an affidavit in the review petitions pending before it in the fighter jet case.

The matter will come up for hearing tomorrow. Last week, the top court had adjourned the hearing in the case till March 14 after the government said that certain documents pertaining to the deal were “stolen” from the Defence Ministry.

The apex court was hearing petitions seeking review of its December 14, 2018 verdict that had dismissed pleas challenging the deal between India and France for procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets.  Read More
