New Delhi, Apr 29: The Centre on Monday asked the Supreme Court to defer the Rafale review hearing listed for Tuesday, saying it needs more time to file its affidavit.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, however, allowed the Centre's counsel to circulate a letter for adjournment in Tuesday's hearing among all the parties in the case, including the petitioners who filed the review pleas.
