India’s Supreme Court rejected petitions on Friday seeking an investigation into a fighter jet deal worth an estimated $8.7 billion with France’s Dassault Aviation (AVMD.PA), saying there was no evidence of wrongdoing.
Axar.az reports India media.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s deal for the purchase of 36 Rafale planes has become a major political controversy because of the escalating price and a decision to pick billionaire Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defense as a domestic partner.
However, the court headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi dismissed the petitions calling for the establishment of a special investigation team to probe the deal.
“We don’t find any material to show it is commercial favoritism,” Gogoi said.
