A court on Wednesday adjourned till April 15 the molestation case against former Haryana police chief SPS Rathore after being told that his counsel was recovering from an injury.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Raj Shekhar Attri gave the ruling. His wife and another counsel, Abha Rathore, accompanied Rathore. His main counsel, Narayan Dutt Sharma, was injured last month.

The case will now be heard April 15 and 16.

The court had earlier adjourned Rathore's case till March 10 following a knife attacks on him by a student, Utsav Sharma.

At that time, Rathore had refused to file a complaint against Sharma. But last week he asked the Chandigarh Police to register an attempt to murder charge against the young man.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special court held Rathore guilty in December last year of molesting 15-year-old Ruchika in Panchkula town in August 1990. She committed suicide three years later.

He was sentenced to six months' rigorous imprisonment and fined Rs 1, 000. Rathore is on bail.
