New Delhi –The special leave petition filed by TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu has been rescheduled for October 3. The case will be heard by a bench led by the Chief Justice of India. Originally, the hearing for this case was listed for today, with a bench comprising Justices Sanjiv Khanna and SVN Bhatti assigned to hear the plea.
However, an unexpected twist occurred as Justice Bhatti recused himself from hearing the plea, which sought the quashing of the FIR related to an alleged skill development scam. Consequently, the Supreme Court decided to postpone the hearing. In response to this development, Siddharth Luthra, the advocate representing Naidu, approached the Chief Justice of India.
The CJI attentively listened to the arguments presented by Luthra and the advocates for the Andhra Pradesh CID. Following these deliberations, the CJI announced that the case would be taken up for hearing on the upcoming Tuesday. It’s worth noting that N Chandrababu Naidu is currently under judicial remand at the Rajamahendravaram Central Prison. This delay in the hearing adds an intriguing layer to the ongoing political saga surrounding the TDP chief’s legal proceedings.
