The Supreme Court is to pronounce on Thursday its verdict on a batch of petitions for reconsideration of its judgement dismissing a plea for a CBI probe into the deal to buy Rafale fighter jet from France.

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph had on May 10 reserved the orders petitions filed by former Union ministers Yashwant Sinha, Arun Shourie and activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan.

They sought a re-examination of the court's findings that there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets.

The court will also deliver its judgement on three separate review petitions filed by the advocates Vineet Dhanda and M L Sharma and Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh.

On December 14, 2018, the apex court dismissed the petitions seeking an investigation into alleged irregularities in the deal.
