SNC Lavalin Case To Be Heard Only After Polls

SC judge N.V. Ramana says the hearing will take time.

A month ago, the Supreme Court accused the CBI of “dragging on” the appeals against the discharge of Kerala Chief Minister in the SNC Lavalin corruption case. On Monday, the court itself decided to adjourn the case until after the summer vacation and the Lok Sabha election during April-May.
