New Delhi, May 26 (TIWN): The government has approached the Supreme Court with written submissions, saying that all review petitions in the controversial Rafale deal should be dismissed. These submissions were filed on Friday.

One of the petitioners, senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan had told the SC that the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) had no precedent to redact pricing details from its official report.

He told the bench comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and KM Joseph that the CAG had never withheld pricing details in its reports in the past. He also questioned why the Cabinet Committee on Security deleted the standard anti-corruption rules from the inter-governmental agreement post-August 24, 2016, and that the government hid this information from the court.
