supreme court 1New iDelhi, Aug 22 :

The Supreme Court Friday issued notice to the central government and the Election Commission on a petition challenging a Delhi High Court direction to investigate the Congress party’s foreign funding.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice R.M. Lodha, while issuing notice returnable in eight weeks, said that the provision on foreign funding requires an interpretation.

The probe into the foreign funding of the Congress was over an allegation that it has received funds from a foreign-based company with operations in India.
