The court had on March 11 given its nod to Swamy’s plea, seeking the balance sheets of the INC and the AJL for the purpose of investigation in this case.

In an application moved before Metropolitan Magistrate Lovleen, Swamy sought to summon the balance sheet, receipts, income and expenditure statements for assessment years 2010- 11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 of the INC, AJL and Young Indian Pvt. Ltd. (YI)

Besides the Congress president and her son, Motilal Vora, Oscar Fernandes, Suman Dubey and Sam Pitroda are the other accused in this case.

Swamy had accused Sonia, Rahul and others of conspiring to cheat and misappropriate funds by just paying Rs. 50 lakh by which YI obtained the right to recover Rs. 90.25 crores which the AJL had owed to the Congress. (ANI)

    This case against Sonia hi is been pending since long, now the time has come to give the judgement, and guilty should be punished, before some of them are dead because of age, illness, or any natural cause

      Trial should be conducted in a fast track court for immediate disposal so that these political thug's can be punished for misuse of their position. Other wise It will drag years together and these politicians loot the country without any shame.lt;br/gt;.

            As usual Swamy would create some fluttedivert media for sometime as well as give some cheers to his fans whichever way the case runs be it either adjournment or opposite side appeals to higher court again. lt;br/gt;No one knows what happens in courts as in India there is no televised court proceedings and Swamy is no angel/saint to believe whatever he says.He is afterall a politician maverick who dances to Nagpur tunes and public are swa by both sides fooling them to keep them in a trance.
