On Thursday the court had adjourned hearing on the matter to March 15th after Karnataka's counsel Dushyanth Dave concluded arguments. Acharya will focus largely on the companies that were alleged to be benami in nature. It was the allegation of the prosecution that some companies had cropped up and had acted as fronts for the accused persons. 

Dave who opened the final arguments had pointed towards the mistakes that the Karnataka High Court had made while delivering the order of acquittal. He pointed out that the High Court had not even once stated a reason as to why it over turned the verdict of the trial court which had passed an exhaustive judgment while convicting Jayalalithaa and three others.

Meanwhile, it is yet to be seen if the Supreme Court will hear an interlocutory application filed by an advocate.

The advocate had contended that the appeal ought to be heard by a division bench of the Karnataka High Court and not the Supreme Court of India. He said that the Supreme Court does not have the jurisdiction to hear this appeal at this stage.

The court assured the advocate of a hearing. However the court also directed him to file an interlocutory application. The matter is likely to heard tomorrow.
