National Herald Case has taken a different route after BJP Leader Subramaniam Swamy has submitted documents related to the case in the court, which were denied. he said that he found the documents of the  I-T assessment report of 2016-17 in front of his door when he went to pick up the newspaper in the morning.

According to him, I-T department has launched investigative proceedings against the people behind it. In court, he asked permission to read and submit the documents but the defence lawyer objected to it saying that nothing substantial exist in it and no authorisation of the document is clear, hence he must not be allowed to submit the documents until further orders. the case dates back when upa was in power and according to Swamy Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are the prime accused.

In the earlier proceeding in the court, Mr Subramaniam Swamy has accused the Gandhi family of using their party fund to save the newspaper which has a debt of 90 crores and they became the owners of the National Herald paper. Swamy in court at multiple times argued that since this is a case involving Gandhi, then they must be present in the court physically. Rahul Gandhi has accused Swamy of targeting Gandhi family as he has a very bad relationship with the Indira Gandhi.

In this recent court judgement where Mr Swamy claimed that 413 crore fine has been slapped on the New Herald, it remains to be seen as to what the time has to tell in the future. Swamy, who was a key petitioner in the 2G  case felt vindicated when the accused were held guilty but recently Mr A. Raja who was one of the prime accused in the Case has said that this was all orchestrated for the winning of the election as it was all done by the Vinod Rai, who acted on behalf of somebody’s else order to falsify the figures. He claimed that he became the victim of the bureaucracy misfire which is very common in the Indian bureaucracy.

National Herald Case

The National Herald Case is actually a case involving the ownership of newspaper which had a serious debt to the tune of 90 crores and the ownership transfer to the young Indian foundation, which was ready to clear all the debt became suspicious.

But due to lack of any evidence the case has been going on for so long and Mr Swamy has been presenting many documents which are not authorised or he does not wish to disclose the sources of his documents. The private life of many politicians, he felt is threatened under this case so the court must take precautions before awarding any judgement in the case.The Latest document presented by the Swamy has not been accepted by the court until now citing same reasons as earlier.

Swamy, on the other hand, said that if the defence has nothing to hide then why are they objecting to the documents presented by them.  The response of the defence is clear that they will not accept any false and unauthorised documents in the court. What the future holds for the National Herald Case is still undecided.
