Rahul Gandi on Modi Rafale Scam

New Delhi: Soon after Union Government submitted in the Supreme Court of India that "crucial documents relating to Rafale deal" have been stolen, Congress President Rahul Gandhi Wednesday said there is enough proof to prosecute Prime Minister Modi in the case.

"There is now enough evidence to prosecute the PM in the #RafaleScam", Rahul Gandhi wrote on Twitter.

"The trail of corruption begins & ends with him", he added.

"That crucial Rafale files incriminating him are now reported “stolen” by the Govt, is destruction of evidence & an obvious coverup", he said.

Rahul Gandhi's comments came hours after Union Government headed by BJP leader Narendra Modi told the Supreme Court that "secret documents relating to Rafale deal", have been stolen from Ministry of Defence.

During the hearing on a review petition, Attorney General KK Venugopal said that documents relating to the Rafale deal, which advocate Prashant Bhushan has been relying on, were stolen from the ministry of defence, according to news agency PTI.

"These documents were stolen from the Defence Ministry either by former or present employees. These are secret documents and can't be in the public domain," Venugopal said.

"We are investigating how these documents were stolen," the center said when Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi questioned what action the government had taken.

The Modi government also defended the deal saying the country needed the Rafale fighters to counter Pakistan's F-16.

"We need Rafale jets to defend our country from F-16 fighter planes that recently bombed us. Without Rafale how can we resist them," the government's lawyer, AG Venugopal argued in the Supreme Court.
