The Supreme Court in its order said that it grants liberty to Acharya appearing for Karnataka to file brief notes in the matter.
On the last date of hearing the Bench comprising Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy took on record the conclusion of arguments by Shekhar Napde appearing for Sasikala Natrajan, Ilavarasi and Sudhakaran who were also acquitted by the Karnataka High Court.
Acharya would appear before the Supreme Court on Tuesday, May 3 and file his reply. The reply as directed by the Supreme Court would be brief and aim at countering the points made by Jayalalalithaa and others while arguing to uphold the verdict of the High Court.
