New Delhi, Feb 24: Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy faced the embarrassment after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday, Feb 24, rejected his plea to probe Congress President Sonia Gandhi's alleged involvement in the Bofors case.

The agency has said that they would open the case if they get new evidences. They had filed a closure report in the case.

In Bofors case, India's Former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and several others were accused for receiving kickbacks from Bofors AB as they won a bid to supply India's 155 mm field howitzer. Swamy's plea has raised curiosity among the Indians on her alleged involvement in the case.

CBI director AP Singh was called by Subramanian Swamy to seek the probe "The Swedish investigating authorities had said that Indian agencies had failed to interrogate Sonia Gandhi and CBI records also say that Ottavio Quattrocchi was close to Gandhi. Quattrocchi was treated like a family
member in the Gandhi family. I met the director to look into that."

Meanwhile, a fresh investigation in the bofors case was ruled out by the senior CBI officials. "The case was exhaustively investigated by CBI and thoroughly examined in courts also. No connection whatsoever of Mrs Sonia Gandhi was found that warranted any form of examination," CBI official said.
