We have been vindicated: the former head of the IAF BS Dhanoa on SC verdict in the Rafale case

NEW DELHI: The former chief, on Thursday welcomed the decision to reject the review requests by challenging his verdict on him, saying they have been vindicated.

I think we have been vindicated, the former boss said when speaking with ANI.

In December 2018, I issued a statement that the Supreme Court had issued an excellent trial and at that time some people said it was being political, which was incorrect, he recalled.

Dhanoa also hoped that the matter will be resolved and said that reorganizing these issues for political gain, leaving behind the interest of the armed forces is not correct.

I hope the matter is resolved now. Fixing such problems for political gain, leaving behind the interest of their armed forces, I think it's not right, he said.

The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed the review requests that challenge its verdict in the Rafale case approved on December 14, 2018, confirming the 36.

A bank of three judges chaired by the President of the Supreme Court and composed of Judge Sanjay Kishan Kaul and KM Joseph approved the order in a batch of petitions seeking the revision of their verdict of December 14, 2018 that confirmed the purchase of 36 Rafale aircraft by Prime Minister Narendra Modi led by the Government of France.
