ED reopens National Herald Case against Sonia, Rahul

National-HeraldThe Enforcement Directorate (ED) has reopened the National Herald case involving Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party Vice President Rahul Gandhi. The case was closed in August by then Director Rajan S Katoch, who was removed for being bias towards the Gandhi family. He had sought the closure of the case, citing technical reasons.

The ED rejected Katoch’s views and reopened the case after his removal from the job. The government said that the case was never closed, but was put on hold following the Director’s confusing recommendations.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has alleged misappropriation of assets worth Rs 2,000 crore of the National Herald English Daily, which is defunct now. Apart from Sonia and Rahul, Congress leaders Motilal Vora and Oscar Fernandes are also under the scanner in this case.
