With three more prosecution witnesses turning hostile, a local court adjourned to November 29, the hearing in the Sankararaman murder case, in which Kanchi Seer Jayendra Saraswathi and his junior Vijayendra Saraswathi are the main accused.

Of the 24 accused, only seven were present when the hearing resumed before the Principal District and Sessions Judge T Ramaswamy.

The absentees included Jayendra and Vijayendra who have been charged under various sections of IPC for criminal conspiracy and murder.

During the trial, three more prosecution witnesses, of the ten examined and cross-examined, turned hostile. They contradicted the statements they had given earlier.

The Judge then adjourned proceedings and posted the next hearing in the case for November 29.

A total of 113 witnesses have been examined since the commencement of the trial here, out of which 61 have turned hostile. The Supreme Court had shifted the case here from Chengalpattu district court on a petition filed by Jayendra Saraswathi in October 2005.

Sankararaman, manager of Varadarajaperumal temple in Kancheepuram, was allegedly murdered in the temple premises on September 3, 2004.
