Swamy tweeted, “PTI release in The Hindu is pure mischief. In my Application I had asked that SLP filed in SC by the Accused, given to Special Court by me, be admitted to by the Accused. I also asked the IT Order, on tax evaded of Rs. 414 crores, given to me u/s138 of IT Act, be admitted. Panic!”

According to the PTI report, the Gandhis made the submission before a court while opposing an application filed by Swamy, seeking summoning of various documents and witnesses in the case. They sought dismissal of the application on the grounds that it was not filed under relevant provisions.

In his application, Swamy had had sought summoning of Secretary General Sanjeev S Kalgaonar (Registry officer) Supreme Court of India, Rajnish Kumar Jha (Dy Land & Development officer), Saket Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Income Tax Circle-1 and a Congress official who issued a press statement on 2 November, 2012.
