The court has posted further hearing to November 28, 2014.

The special court had taken cognizance of the case in the last hearing. On Thursday, the court recorded the sworn-in statement of the complainant, B Vinod, an advocate from Shivamogga. 

The complaint listed Raghavendra’s brother B Y Vijayendra and brothers-in-law R N Sohan Kumar and B S Udayakumar as other accused.
