SNC-Lavalin case: SC to hear CBI plea against Vijayan discharge in April
New Delhi, Feb 23 : The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing on the CBI's plea challenging the discharge of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and two others in a graft case connected with a contract awarded to Canadian firm SNC-Lavalin during his tenure as state Power Minister.
Additional Solicitor General S.V. Raju, representing the CBI, submitted before a bench headed by Justice U.U. Lalit that he is occupied in a partly-heard matter in another court and requested the court to schedule the matter for further hearing next week.
The top court, however, scheduled the matter for further hearing on April 6.
The CBI had moved the top court challenging the Kerala High Court order upholding a special court's decision to discharge Vijayan in the matter.
