A Delhi court kept pending on Saturday BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s application against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case as some party leaders said Swamy would have to satisfy that the documents he was seeking were relevant.

The decision came after Congress leaders told metropolitan magistrate Loveleen that Swamy would have to satisfy the court on whether the documents he was seeking were of any relevance to the matter at hand.

Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the Gandhis, told the court that the order had been challenged before the HC by Motilal Vora, an accused in the case, and the HC has issued a notice to Swamy on the plea.

The lawyers representing the accused also told the court that these documents should be kept in a sealed cover till the issue is decided by the high court. Opposing the contentions, Swamy told the court that the documents, which were placed before the magistrate on Saturday, were related to AJL and they were required for the case.
