National Herald Case: Delhi High Court allows I-T Department to probe Sonia and Rahul

In probably one of the biggest setback for the Gandhi family, the Delhi High Court on Friday, cleared all decks for an Income Tax investigation into Young Indian Private Limited in which Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi are directors.

The Young Indian Private Ltd is now likely to move the Supreme Court.

A bench of Justice S Muralidhar and Justice Chander Shekhar asked the company to approach the Income Tax assessing officer, after which the firm withdrew its petition. The court then dismissed the plea as it was withdrawn. Young India had approached the high court seeking a direction to stay the IT proceedings and quashing of notices against it with regard to the National Herald misappropriation of assets case. The company was issued notices regarding the assessment year 2011-12.

Sonia and Rahul have been accused of conspiring to "cheat and misappropriate funds" by paying Rs 50 lakh through which Young Indian Pvt. Ltd obtained the right to recover Rs 90.25 crore which Associate Journals Ltd (AJL) owed to the Congress. Speaking to CNN-News18, BJP leader and Rajya Sabha member Subramanian Swamy said that these cases will see the light of day. "If Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not do anything, people will say that he only gives speeches."
