day after Attorney General KK Venugopal claimed that the Rafale documents were not stolen, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman backed him, saying that the Opposition's allegations were "wholly incorrect". Nirmala Sitharaman said Venugopal's submission before the Supreme Court actually meant that the petitioners in the application used "photocopies of the original" papers, deemed secret by the government.
