SPP appointment: HC tells DMK leader to approach SC

The bench is hearing the writ appeal by Anbazhagan against rejection of his plea for discontinuation of Singh as SPP in the case.

The Karnataka High Court Tuesday directed DMK leader K Anbazhagan and Special Public Prosecutor Bhavani Singh to approach the Supreme Court to seek clarification on the issue of appointment of SPP in the appeal by AIADMK Chief Jayalalithaa against her conviction in the wealth case.

“As per the Supreme Court order, there is no clarity on the appointment of SPP. The bench has to go by the apex court’s order and hence I ask you both (Anbazhagan and Singh) to go before it to seek clarification without wasting much time,” a Division bench said here. The bench, comprising Justices N Kumar and B Veerappa, is hearing the writ appeal by Anbazhagan against rejection of his plea for discontinuation of Singh as SPP in the case.
