SC to consider listing of pleas seeking review of Rafale verdict

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court today said it would consider hearing pleas seeking review of its December 14 verdict that had dismissed petitions challenging the deal between India and France for procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi today considered the submission of Prashant Bhushan that his review plea and a separate application, seeking perjury prosecution of some government officials for "misleading" the court during earlier hearings, be listed urgently. The bench said, the combination of bench will have to be changed and will do something for it.

The top court had rejected the petitions, including those by former Union ministers, Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie as also lawyer Prashant Bhushan, seeking judicial scrutiny and court-monitored CBI probe into the Rs 58,000 crore deal, saying there was no occasion to really doubt the decision making process.

Besides Sinha, Shourie and Bhushan, advocates M L Sharma and Vineet Dhanda and AAP leader Sanjay Singh had also filed pleas challenging the Rafale deal.

The December verdict was delivered by the bench comprising the CJI and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph. The two Justices are currently part of different bench cominations.

A day after the verdict, the Centre had moved the apex court seeking correction in the judgement where a reference has been made about the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report and Parliament's Public Accounts Committee (PAC), saying misinterpretation of its note has resulted in a controversy in the public domain.
