The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of the writ petition filed by Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in the knife attack case to six weeks. The High Court, in its interim stay order on further hearing on Kodi Kathi case in the NIA Court in Visakhapatnam, adjourned it for eight weeks. It also directed the National Investigation Agency (NIA) Court to file a counter to the petition filed by YS Jagan.
On October 12, YS Jagan filed a writ petition in the High Court challenging the dismissal of his plea by the NIA Court, Vijayawada, for a probe into the knife attack on him by J Srinivasa Rao (Srinu) at Visakhapatnam International Airport on October 25, 2018. After hearing the arguments of both the parties on October 13, High Court judge, Justice K Sreenivasa Reddy adjourned the hearing to October 17. Once again on Tuesday, the counsel for YS Jagan appealed to the judge for a probe into the deeper conspiracy of the knife attack on him.
