New Delhi: A court in Delhi today posted the hearing on a plea for a fresh passport by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, an accused in the National Herald case, on May 26.
Rahul Gandhi had moved the court on Tuesday seeking a ‘no objection certificate’ to secure a fresh “ordinary passport” after having surrendered his diplomatic travel document upon his disqualification as an MP.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vaibhav Mehta posted the matter on Friday for the filling of written submissions and the arguments of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy.
During the proceedings, Rahul Gandhi’s advocate sought the grant of the NOC document, saying there are no criminal cases pending against him.
Mr Mehta, however, said Mr Swamy had the right to file a reply on the application.
