Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the Gandhis, told Metropolitan Magistrate Lovleen that complainant Swamy will have to show as to how these documents summoned by the court on January 11 were relevant to the case.

Sibal told the court that the order has been challenged before the high court by Motilal Vora, an accused in the case, and the high court has issued a notice to Swamy on the plea.

The lawyers representing the accused also told the court that these documents should be kept in a sealed cover till the issue is decided by the high court.

Opposing the contentions, Swamy told the court that the documents, which were placed before the magistrate today, were related to Associated Journal Ltd (AJL) and they were required for the case.

During the hearing, in which media was not allowed, Swamy argued that although the high court has issued a notice on Vora's plea it had not stayed the order summoning documents from these ministries.
