The Special CBI Court adjourned further hearing in the 'Rs2 crore gifts case' involving former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa to October 16 in Chennai on Thursday.
Jayalalithaa was present in the court when the case came up for hearing before Special Judge for CBI Cases S Meenakshisundaramon Thursday morning.
Her counsel N Jyothi filed two petitions on his client's behalf seeking to dispense with her personal appearance for further proceedings under Section 205 of the CrPC and furnishing copy of the charge sheet.
CBI Counsel Jacob Daniel said he had no objection in allowing the petition seeking to dispense with her personal appearance for further proceedings.
Mr Daniel said he had to verify if a charge sheet could be furnished to Ms Jayalalithaa as two other accused - KA Sengottaiyan and Alagu Thirunavukkarasu - were not present in the court.
The petition could be adjourned to Monday to enable him to verify the matter and inform the court.
Jayalalithaa need not be present in the court on Monday and a copy of the charge sheet would be served to her counsel on the date.
Also, as summons could not be served to the other two accused and hence, fresh summons may be issued to them by the court.
Following this, the judge adjourned further hearing in the case to October 16.
