In an expected move, Supreme Court has agreed to hear on Rafale after fresh allegations were made by French Media regarding involvement of middleman in the Rafale Deal.
There is mild uneasiness in the corridors of power after the alleged scandal in the Rafale deal was revealed. Even now a Public Interest Litigation has been filed in the Supreme Court against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for being prosecuted in the Rafael Deal. This petition has been filed on behalf of a person named Manohar Lal Sharma.
The petition also demanded registration of similar cases against the alleged Indian middleman Sushen Gupta. A CBI inquiry has been demanded in the case by Sharma under the supervision of the court. According to the Telegraph news, this petition was filed on 6 April. But Manohar Lal Sharma made it public on Sunday 11 April. The matter is expected to be heard next week.
MediaPart, a French media portal, claimed that the Enforcement Directorate of India had not investigated the money given by Dassault and its subsidiaries to a broker named Susheen Gupta. The portal claimed that Gupta had obtained important documents from the Ministry of Defense which he handed over to Dassault Aviation.
