SC seeks Rahul Gandhi's explanation on its Rafale verdict

FILE PIC: PTI

The Supreme Court has said that remarks made by Rahul Gandhi on the Rafale case verdict were "incorrectly attributed" to the apex court and directed the Congress President to give his explanation by next Monday. 

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi today said it will consider the petition filed by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi seeking contempt action against Gandhi for attributing some observations to the apex court which were not in the Rafale judgement.

The court said the explanation by Gandhi has to be filed on or before  22nd April and the matter will be heard on 23rd.

Congress said, it will give a comprehensive and effective reply to the Supreme Court’s notice to Rahul Gandhi for the alleged contempt of court. Party Spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi alleged that the BJP has distorted Gandhi’s statement.
