New Delhi: The Supreme Court said on Friday that the contempt petition filed by BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi against Congress president Rahul Gandhi accusing him of misquoting an apex court in connection with the Rafale deal will be heard on 15 April.

The decision came from a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi after the plea was made by senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi. The contempt petition accused Gandhi of misquoting the order when the Congress leader said the apex court had accepted that ‘chowkidar’ (a reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi), is a “chor’ (thief).
