While mentioning the Case, Supreme Court said it would hear on January 25 the petition by Journalist Rana Ayyub challenging the summons issued to her by a special PMLA court in Ghaziabad in a money-laundering case lodged by the ED.

Journalist Rana Ayyub in her Writ Petition, sought quashing of the proceedings initiated by the Enforcement Directorate in Ghaziabad citing lack of jurisdiction as the alleged offense of money-laundering is Excursive Jurisdiction of Mumbai only.

Supreme Court bench of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justices V Ramasubramanian and JB Pardiwala, posted the matter after senior advocate Vrinda Grover mentioned it.

Appearing for Appellant Senior Advocate Vrinda Grover submitted to the court that the Bench which was scheduled to hear the matter on Monday was not available, and requested the bench to post the matter for hearing later on Monday at 2pm.

Court said, “We will keep this day after tomorrow before an appropriate bench. Today will be difficult,”.

Previously on January 17, 2023 Supreme Court bench of CJI Chandrachud had agreed to consider listing the plea by Ayyub for urgent hearing after taking note of the submissions by advocate Vrinda Grover who appeared for her.
