EC shuts case on Sonia

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Apr 6 (UNI) The Election Commission is understood to have closed the case against Congress president Sonia Gandhi on the 'Office of Profit' issue.

The Commission which is examining the case of 16 MPs including Mrs Gandhi has taken the decision to shut the case as it deems no meaning to proceed with, since Mrs Gandhi has resigned her Lok Sabha seat.

Last month President A P J Abdul Kalam had forwarded to the EC, a bunch of petitions received by him against the MPs for holding Office of Profit. Mrs Gandhi was Chairman of the National Advisory Council which the petition said was an office of profit.

As Mrs Gandhi resigned her Lok Sabha seat on March 23, the Commission felt no necessity to go into the merits of the case.
