verdict LIVE updates: The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected petitions seeking a review of decision in 2018 that gave a clean chit to the government in the fighter jet deal with French firm Dassault Aviation.

The bench comprised Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph.

The Supreme Court on December 14 last year had dismissed petitions seeking court-monitored probe of the jet deal with France, saying that there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process. The top court had also said that it was not its job to go into the issue of pricing of fighter planes.

The apex court is also scheduled to pronounce its verdict on the criminal contempt plea filed against Congress leader by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi for wrongly attributing to the apex court his "chowkidar chor hai" remark in case against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Gandhi had made the remarks on April 10, the day the apex court had dismissed the Centre's preliminary objections over admissibility of certain documents for supporting the review petitions against the December 14 last year verdict in the Rafale case.
