The Madras high court on Wednesday posted to February four the hearing on Kanchi seer Jayendra Saraswati's anticipatory bail application in a case pertaining to tampering with the records containing the mutt's accounts.
When the application, filed on Tuesday, came up for hearing before Justice M Thanickachalam, the government advocate sought its adjournment on the grounds that Tamil Nadu Public Prosecutor K Doraisamy was engaged elsewhere and could not attend the court.
In his application, the seer apprehended that he would be 'maliciously' and 'falsely' named in the case with an 'ulterior motive'.
According to the police, certain pages from the ledger book were allegedly torn or were missing and were fabricated.
A case has been registered under Sections 420 (cheating), 463 (forgery), 465 (punishment for forgery), 468 (forgery for the purpose of cheating), 471 (using as genuine a forged document) and 474 (having possession of documents knowing it to be forged) of the Indian Penal Code.
On January 3, the seer had obtained bail in the Radhakrishnan assault case and on January 10, the Supreme Court had granted him bail in the Sankararaman murder case.
An anticipatory bail application in the Tirukottiyur Madhavan assault case is pending with the sessions court in Chennai.
