A new metropolitan magistrate has been marked in the matter in the National Herald case, following the transfer of the original magistrate Gomti Manocha. The new magistrate is expected to be apprised of the developments of the case today. The legal counsel of the Congress is reportedly going to seek a fresh date of hearing, which is likely to be granted. The counsel of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi is also likely to seek fresh issuance of summons. Yesterday, Delhi High Court had rejected the Gandhis’ plea to quash summons against them, ruling that they will have to appear in the trial court now. BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had alleged that Associated Journals Ltd (AJL), the publisher of the now-defunct National Herald newspaper, had received an interest-free loan of Rs 90.25 crore from the Congress and that the party transferred the debt to Young India Ltd (YIL), “a firm in which Sonia and Rahul Gandhi each own a 38-percent stake”, for Rs 50 lakh. On June 26, the trial court issued summons to the Congress leaders on Swamy’s complaint on “cheating” in the acquisition of AJL, by YIL.
