New Delhi, Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its order on the preliminary objections and claims of privilege over the leaked documents in Rafale deal case.
Attorney General KK Venugopal sought from a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi to remove the leaked pages from the review petitions since the government is claiming privilege over these documents.
Prashant Bhushan, while in his submissions, told the court that he doesn’t need time to file a reply to the government’s affidavit filed on Wednesday.
Bhushan argued that all the documents are already in public domain and hence, it was an untenable for the government to claim privilege on these papers. The other petitioners who had moved the SC seeking a review are Arun Shourie, Yashwant Sinha, and AAP MP Sanjay Singh.
