Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday said the Delhi high court verdict clearing her late husband and former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi in the Bofors payoff case has vindicated their stand that he was not involved in it.

Gandhi told repoters here that the verdict has upheld the truth 'what my husband had been saying'.

Hailing the verdict, Gandhi, flanked by her children, Rahul and Priyanka, said, "Today is a very special moment for us."

"Seventeen years of vilification... all of us have tolerated this all these years but ultimately the truth has prevailed," she said.

Asked by a TV channel whether power brokers close to Rajiv Gandhi had misused their proximity, Gandhi said there were possibilities of people taking advantage of their closeness.

She recalled that Rajiv Gandhi had said that he and his family were not involved in the case.
