Shankaracharya's bail plea posted for Jan 20

January 12, 2005 13:53 IST

Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati'sapplication for anticipatory bail in a case of physical assault on a temple priest last year in Chennai was on Wednesday adjourned to January 20 by the principal sessions court.

This case is one of the three against the seer. He has already obtained bail in the other two cases and is out of jail.

The Shankaracharya's lawyer, K S Dinakaran, agreed to the adjournment after Public Prosecutor Doraisamy gave an undertaking that the seer will not be arrested till the time the court dealt with the anticipatory bail plea.

The Tamil Nadu government, meanwhile, has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking modification of the court's January 10 ordergranting bail to the seer in the Sankararaman murder case.
