New Delhi: Supreme Court on Tuesday asked BJP leader Subramanian Swamy to make out a case in Delhi High Court for speedy trial of the National Herald case in which Congress President Sonia Gandhi , Rahul Gandhi along with three others have been summoned as accused.

The issue is going to spiral into a big political clash little over a week before the budget session of Parliament. While the congress is yet to deny whether any such I-T assessment order was delivered to the accused in the National Herald case the party is already challenging how an income tax order - a private correspondence between a department and assessee reach Swamy.

The I-T probe is already mired in political acrimony. Sources say that the assessment order also includes Congress leader Motilal Vora’s letters to the department accusing the Assessing Officer with political bias for demanding the details of the Rs 90 crore loan claim to National Herald.

What is going to raise the hackles with the congress is the fact that Swamy has alleged that the Income Tax order also mentions former cong president Sonia's daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

Sources allege that the order mentions “In order to fulfill the objective of acquiring 100 percent shares of the AJL, one of the majority shareholder of the assessee (Young Indian), Rahul Gandhi along with sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had purchased an additional 47,513 and 2,62,411 shares through Rattan Deep Trust and Janhit Nidhi Trust without complying with the provisions of the Companies Act.”

Sources claim that the order lays down that the “competent authority after making enquiry has held that the assessee company (Young Indian) had not carried out any activity in accordance with its charitable object and has cancelled the tax exemption enjoyed by the assessee company by passing an order under section 12AA(3) of the Act on December 26, 2017.
