New Delhi: The Supreme Court can hear Friday on the politically sensitive Rs 64-crore Bofors bribe case Friday. The CBI filed an appeal in this year with a delay of 12 years against the Delhi High Court's decision to dismiss charges against all the accused. The apex court will also hear the BJP leader and advocate Ajay Agarwal, who has been pursuing this matter for more than a decade. The court has asked them to clarify the matter regarding their case in filing petition in the form of a third party.
Agarwal, who contested from Rae Bareli against the then Congress president Sonia Gandhi in the 2014 Lok Sabha election, has filed an appeal against the Delhi High Court's 31 May 2005 judgment. The matter has been listed before the bench of Justice R Bhanumati and Justice Indira Banerjee on October 12 for the hearing. During the hearing on January 16, the apex court asked Agrawal to tell about his relationship with the matter and to satisfy the matter that how it can be accepted for consideration on the matter of a third party.
