A Supreme Court bench has closed the case, but admonished Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for wrongly wrongly attributing to the Supreme Court his “chowkidar chor hai” remark in the Rafale case against PM Modi. The court said Rahul should be more careful in future.
A criminal contempt plea filed was against the Congress leader by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi.
Gandhi had made the remarks on April 10, the day the court had dismissed the Centre’s preliminary objections over admissibility of certain documents for supporting the review petitions against the December 14 last year verdict in the Rafale case. A bench comprising Gogoi and Justices SK Kaul and KM Joseph had on May 10 reserved the judgement.
