At the request of the Additional Solicitor General, SV Raju, the Bench comprising L Nageswara Rao, BR Gavai and AS Bopanna, granted time to file a reply and adjourned the matter to May 17.

The Bench expressed displeasure with the inordinate delay in disposing of his bail application by the High Court. However, as the judgment was already reserved by the High Court, the bench decided to give a chance to decide it at the earliest. In the view of the same, the matter was adorned to May 11.
