KOCHI: The High Court on Monday ordered that the non-bailable arrest warrant issued by JFCM Court, Kozhikode, against Saritha Nair, an accused in the solar case, should be kept in abeyance for two weeks. 
Though a plea seeking to exempt personal appearance was filed, the magistrate dismissed it and issued the non-bailable warrant, submitted Saritha’s counsel. The HC granted the petitioner permission to surrender before the magistrate court and move a bail plea. The court said the magistrate should consider the plea on the date of surrender.
