NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Monday reserved its order on the pleas of Congress leaders challenging summoning of documents from different ministries in connection with the National Herald case.

The Indian National Congress and the Associated Journals Private Limited (AJL) had last week submitted their respective balance sheets to a Delhi court in connection with this case. The court had last month directed the Congress party to submit its balance sheet for the year 2010- 2011 in compliance with its order in the National Herald case.

A Delhi Court had earlier on March 11 given its nod to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Subramaniam Swamy's plea, seeking the balance sheets of the Indian National Congress (INC) and AJL for the purpose of investigation in the case.

Swamy had before approached the Patiala House Court seeking summoning of certain documents related to the financial details of Congress, AJL and Young Indian Pvt. Ltd.

The case relates to the Congress granting an interest-free loan of Rs. 90.25 crore to Associated Journals Limited (AJL), owner of the National Herald newspaper which was established by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1938.
