The court allowed the admissibility of three documents in Rafale deal as evidence in re-examining the review petitions filed against the SC’s December 14 judgement in which it refused to order probe in procuring 36 Rafale fighter jets from France.
“As far as the question of hearing of review plea on Rafale judgement is concerned, it will give a detailed hearing later on,” SC said.
