SC contempt notice to Rahul binds him to appear personally: Rohatgi

New Delhi, April 23 (IANS) In a dramatic twist to the Rahul Gandhi contempt notice, top legal eagle Mukul Rohatgi on Tuesday said issuance of notice by the Supreme Court to the Congress President in a criminal contempt petition will make him personally appear to explain his statement which he had wrongly attributed to the apex court on the Rafale verdict.

Rohatgi, appearing for BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi, who had filed the criminal contempt petition, said Gandhi has to appear in person before the apex court.

“He needs to appear in person and give an explanation on the averments made in the criminal contempt petition,” Rohtagi told reporters after the top court issued the notice to Gandhi.

The criminal contempt notice was issued to Gandhi for his “chowkidar chor hai” remark while attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the Rafale judgment, which the apex court said was “incorrectly attributed” to it.
