Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party Vice President Rahul Gandhi will have to appear before a Delhi court tomorrow in connection with the National Herald case after the Delhi High Court (HC) today dismissed pleas challenging summons issued to them.
"Petitions are dismissed," Justice Sunil Gaur said in his judgement while also declining another of their plea for exemption from personal appearance in the lower court.
The Gandhis and the other five accused--Suman Dubey, Moti Lal Vohra, Oscar Fernandez, Sam Pitroda and Young India Ltd--will have to appear in the trial court tomorrow, before which the case will come up.
It also refused to extend the August 6, 2014 interim order by which the summons were stayed.
