BANGALORE: The Lokayukta Special Court adjourned the hearing on a private case filed against Advocate General B V Acharya and four others who were allegedly involved in fraudulent financial transactions of BMS Education Trust till February 14.

On January 24, N Venkateshaiah, a 94-year-old man residing on Shivaganga Mutt Road in Chamarajapet, had filed the case alleging Acharya and others of misappropriating several crores of rupees belonging to the trust. He had also questioned Acharya of holding two positions at a time - Advocate General’s post and being the chairman of the council of trustees of the trust.

On Tuesday, the advocates representing the complainant had sought a day’s time to study details of the case. Even on Wednesday, senior counsel Tommy Sebastian representing the complainant informed the court that they had the photocopies of all documents related to the misappropriation of funds. Hence, he sought the court to give some time to get the certified copies. Later, Judge N K Sudheendra Rao asked them to produce all related documents and adjourned hearing.
