SC adjourns hearing on Kanchi seer's bail plea

December 10, 2004 13:51 IST

The Supreme Court on Friday adjourned the hearing on a petition seeking bail for Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati.

The matter has been now posted for Friday.

However, in a surprising development, the Shankaracharya's counsel, M N Krishnamani, objected to the petition, describing it as mischievous.

Krishnamani informed the court that no one except him has been authorised to file a petition on behalf of the mutt and the Shankaracharya.

He later told reporters he will move a bail application on behalf of the seer on Monday.
