Bengaluru, May 11: Special Public Prosecutor for Karnataka, B V Acharya has sought more time to conclude his arguments in the Jayalalithaa disproportionate assets case. Acharya who resumed arguments on Tuesday today sought another day's time to conclude his submissions.
The Bench comprising Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy will decide on whether the arguments will continue during the summer vacations which will begin next week onwards.
In case the Bench decides to hear during the summer vacations then the same Bench would need to convene a special sitting for the same. The Bench will take a call on the matter tomorrow.
The Bench is hearing an appeal filed by Karnataka challenging
the acquittal of Tamil Nadu chief minister, J Jayalalithaa and
three others in the disproportionate assets case.
Acharya has been filing his counter arguments since last Wednesday.
He resumed arguments this week on Tuesday. During the arguments he submitted to the court that a clear case had been made out against Jayalalithaa and others. He also referred several times to the companies that were floated by Jayalalithaa's aide, Sasikala Natrajan only with an intention of moving the disproportionate income.
After Acharya concludes his arguments, the Bench is still to hear two petitions that have challenged the appointment of Acharya and also the locus standi of Karnataka in filing the appeal.
