Supreme Court Adjourns Hearing on PIL against Rafale Fighter Jet

Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned hearing on a PIL which is seeking a stay on the Rafale jet deal between Indian and France. The petition has been filed by advocate ML Sharma, who is known for regularly filing PILs in various cases, many of them frivolous and rejected by the apex court. A bench comprising Justices Ranjan Gogoi, Navin Sinha and K M Joseph adjourned the case till October 10.

Petitioner advocate ML Sharma told the court that he wants to file some additional documents related to the case and therefore he had requested that the matter is adjourned.

“You yourself circulated a letter seeking adjournment on the ground of ill health. Now you are saying that you want to file additional documents. We are simply adjourning the matter to October 10,” the bench hearing the matter said.

In the petition, Sharma alleges that the deal between India and France for the Rafale fighter jets is involved in corruption and he has also alleged that the cancellation of the older tender suggests a conspiracy. The petitioner has asked for an inquiry by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) monitored by the Supreme Court. The petitioner has also requested to cancel the agreement until the completion of an investigation by the SIT.
