HC dismisses pleas of Sonia and Rahul in I-T case
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Monday dismissed the pleas of Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi challenging reopening of their tax assessment for 2011-12.
A bench of Justices S Ravindra Bhat and A K Chawla said, “The writ petitions have failed”.
The bench also dismissed the petition of Congress leader Oscar Fernandes who too had challenged the reopening of his tax assessment for the same year (2011-12).
Sonia Gandhi had, last month, informed the Delhi high court that the income tax (I-T) department had “mala fide” intention in sending reassessment notice to Young Indian Pvt Ltd (YI). Sonia and her son Rahul are major stakeholders of YI. (PTI)
