Rafale Verdict Today Live News Updates: A three-judge bench led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi Thursday dismissed a batch of review petitions challenging its December 2018 verdict in the Rafale case. The Bench, which also comprised Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph, said the petitions “lack merit”.

“We don’t feel necessary to order FIR or roving inquiry into Rafale deal case,” the apex court said.

In December 14, 2018, the SC had dismissed two petitions — one filed by by former Union Ministers Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie and advocate Prashant Bhushan, and the other by AAP Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh — seeking a court-monitored investigation into the India-France deal for the purchase of 36 Rafale fighter aircraft.

Opposition parties have alleged that the aircraft, built by Dassault Aviation of France, was purchased under a direct government-to-government agreement at a much higher price than the one negotiated for 126 aircraft by the UPA government under an open tender.
