The hearing on the Sankararaman murder case has been adjourned to July 5 by the local court here on Monday.

The proceedings of the case came up before second additional district and sessions court judge Mohandass, as  Principal District and Sessions judge, C S Murugan, who was hearing the case, was on leave. Judge Mohandass posted the next hearing to July 5.

It may be recalled that the chief judge of Puducherry asked Special Public Prosecutor N Devadoss to submit details relating to late SP (Retd) Premkumar and his status in the investigation of the Sankararaman murder case.

Chief judge Murugan had in the last hearing pointed out to the defence counsels that the Ananda Sharma, Sankararaman’s son, had sought the audio tapes of the proceedings, which Kathiravan, one of the accused, had objected to and had obtained a stay from Madras HC for the same. Ananda Sharma had withdrawn the petition after Kathiravan was murdered.

The judge wanted the defence counsels of the 23 accused in the case to file a petition that they have no objection to delivering the judgement. Both the prosecution and defence counsels have to submit the petitions on or before the next hearing.
