A break-in has taken place at the Indian Air Force’s office inside the Dassault Aviation complex in Paris that is supervising the production of 36 Rafale fighters for India.
The government has rejected Congress's charge of corruption in the deal with the ruling BJP accusing the party of spreading lies to target it.
In 2011, the Hindustan Aeronautical Limited signed a contract to upgrade the existing Mirage 2000 to Mirage 2000-5 Mk, increasing the jet's life span till 2030.
Eric Trappier said they chose Reliance as he wanted to be in charge of the industrial process in the company that manufactures parts of the French aircraft in India.
The Supreme Court Wednesday said any discussion on pricing of the Rafale fighter jets can only take place if the facts on the deal are allowed to come in the public domain.
In Jabalpur, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told reporters that the "lies of Rahul Gandhi had been caught again".

The nation needs a fair investigation and not doctored explanations on the fighter jet deal, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.

The Congress president also alleged that CBI chief Alok Verma was removed as he wanted to investigate the Rafale deal.

He again made it clear that Dassault Aviation, which manufactures the Rafale jets, chose its offset partner.
In the 33-page complaint to the CBI, Bhushan and Shourie claimed that Anil Ambani-led Reliance group had incorporated its own subsidiary Reliance Defence barely a few days before the deal.
Congress was referring to reports on former France President Francois Hollande's claims regarding a private Indian firm becoming an offset partner in the intergovernmental deal for the fighter jets.
Bhushan questioned how Anil Ambani's Reliance Defence, the Indian offset partner of French firm Dassault Aviation, could be involved in the project as "most of his companies are in debt."
Singh said the verification of the French media report, which quoted former French President Francois Hollande on the purchase of the Rafale fighter jets, will reveal the truth.
Hollande was quoted in an article by a French website as claiming that the Indian government had asked the French government to nominate Reliance Defence as its India partner in the deal.
The previous UPA government in 2012 started negotiations with Dassault Aviation to buy 126 Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA).
