The matter was listed today before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Samar Vishal for the cross-examination of BJP leader Swamy by the defence counsel.

Sonia and Rahul Gandhi's lawyer RS Cheema had put 18 questions to Swamy on February 4 in the partly held cross-examination in the court of the ACMM. The ACMM's court was recently shifted from Patiala House to the newly constructed Rouse Avenue court complex.

Swamy had filed the case in 2012 accusing the two Gandhis and others of conspiring to cheat and misappropriate funds.

He had stated that the Congress party granted an interest-free loan of Rs. 90.25 crore to Associated Journals Limited (AJL), owner of the National Herald newspaper.
