The hearing before the Supreme Court in the Rafale Review case is currently underway.
The review petitions have been filed against the Court’s December 2018 judgment, by which it dismissed petitions calling for an investigation into the Rafale deal.
The review petitions preferred by Yashwant Sinha, Arun Shourie, Prashant Bhushan and Sanjay Singh claim that the judgment is based on “errors apparent on the face of the record” and ought to be recalled.
The contempt petition filed by Meenakshi Lekhi against Rahul Gandhi will also be heard by Rafale Bench today.
The petitions are being heard by a Bench of Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and KM Joseph.
