New Delhi: A Delhi Court on Monday adjourned the hearing on the National Herald Case till April 8.
The lawyer appearing for the Congress in the Patiala House Court submitted that the court’s summon asking for the financial details of the Indian National Congress (INC) for the year 2010-2011 has not been received by the office bearers of the party.
A Delhi Court had earlier on March 11 given its nod to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Subramaniam Swamy’s plea, seeking the balance sheets of the Indian National Congress (INC) and Associated Journals Pvt. Ltd (AJL) for the purpose of investigation in the case.
Swamy had before approached the Patiala House Court seeking summoning of certain documents related to the financial details of Congress, AJL and Young Indian Pvt. Ltd.
The case relates to the Indian National Congress granting an interest-free loan of Rs. 90.25 crore (USD 13 million) to Associated Journals Limited (AJL), owner of the National Herald newspaper which was established by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1938.
