NEW DELHI, June 26 � Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice president Rahul Gandhi were today summoned as accused by a local court for alleged cheating and misappropriation of funds in acquiring ownership of the now-defunct daily National Herald, reports PTI.

Holding that the complainant, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, has established a prima facie case of cheating, misappropriation of funds and criminal breach of trust against the accused, Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha also issued summons to AICC treasurer Moti Lal Vohra, general secretary Oscar Fernandes, and Suman Dubey and Sam Pitroda, besides the Gandhis, to appear before the court on August 7.

All of them are directors of the Young Indian Ltd (YI), a company that was incorporated in 2010 and which took over the �debt� of Associated Journals Ltd (AJL), the publisher of National Herald.

Swamy had accused Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and others of conspiring to cheat and misappropriate funds by just paying Rs 50 lakh, by which YI obtained the right to recover Rs 90.25 crore which the AJL had owed to the Congress party.
