The Supreme Court said on Friday it will hear on April 8 the plea of Tamil Nadu Rural Development Minister I Periyasamy challenging the Madras High Court order for his trial in a corruption case.


A bench of Justices Hrishikesh Roy and Prashant Kumar Mishra said it will take up the matter for hearing on Monday after Periyasamy’s counsel pleaded for urgent hearing.

In an application filed through advocate Ram Sankar, Periyasamy sought the apex court’s direction for deferment of trial and exemption from personal appearance in the graft case before a Chennai court.
