Bofors case to be heard in October

New Delhi: The Supreme Court is likely to hear in October a plea seeking the restoration of charges against UK-based Hinduja brothers for their alleged involvement in the kickbacks in the purchase of Bofors Howitzer guns by India in the mid-eighties.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A M Khanwilkar and Justice D Y Chandrachud directed the final hearing of the matter in the week commencing on October 8.

This was after petitioner-advocate Ajay Agrawal sought an early hearing of the matter, citing fresh evidence.

Agrawal had moved the court in 2005 challenging a Delhi High Court order quashing the CBI case against the three Hinduja brothers in the Bofors case.
