The Delhi High Court ruled that a company which has congress bosses Sonia and Rahul Gandhi as its main stakeholders will be investigated by income tax officials.

Indian media says at the heart of the court case is associated journals limited, publisher of three newspapers, including the national herald, an English daily founded and edited by Jawaharlal Nehru before he became India’s first prime minister.

In 2008, the company shut down with an alleged unpaid debt of about 15 million us dollars.

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has accused Rahul Gandhi, PM Nehru’s great-grandson, and Sonia, of setting up a firm called the young Indian company to buy the debt using congress party funds even though associated journals allegedly had real estate assets worth at least 335 million us dollars, which would have cleared the debt.
