Relief for Congress: I-T dept tells Supreme Court no action till Lok Sabha polls

At the outset of the hearing on Congress’s appeal against a Delhi high court order, solicitor general Tushar Mehta told a bench of Justices B V Nagarathna and Augustine George Masih that he wanted to make a statement on behalf of I-T department. He said no further action would be taken against the opposition party during the ongoing general elections. He said the case could be posted for hearing after June 4 when the results of Lok Sabha polls would be declared. He said he would oppose Congress’s claim then.
