On April 27, the court adjourned the hearing in the National Herald's case until July 5 after Swamy and the president of the Congress's attorney. Rahul Gandhi , President of the UPA Sonia gandhi and other defendants requested a postponement.
Sonia and Rahul Gandhi 's lawyer RS Cheema had put 18 questions to Swamy on February 4 in the partly held cross-examination in the court of the ACMM. The ACMM's court was recently shifted from Patiala House to the newly constructed Rouse Avenue court complex.
Swamy had filed the case in 2012 accusing the two Gandhis and others of conspiring to cheat and embezzle funds.
He had stated that the Congress party granted one of Rs. 90.25 million rupees to Associated Journals Limited (AJL), owner of the National Herald newspaper.
