Sankararaman Case: Kanchi Mutt Official Moves HC
An accused in the Sankararaman murder case in which Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi is the main accused today moved the Madras High Court seeking to implead him in a petition on which the court had stayed the trial in the case by a Puducherry court.

When the petition of then manager of the mutt N Sundaresan, also an accused in the case, came up for hearing, Justice K Suguna ordered filing of counter affidavit and posted the matter to September 22.

Sankararaman, Manager of the Sri Varadarajaperumal temple in Kancheepuram, was murdered in September 2004 and Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi and his junior Vijayendra Saraswathi are the prime accused in the case.

A city advocate, P.Sundararajan, had recently filed a petition alleging that some tapes containing a telephonic conversation among some persons to influence the judgement in the case had come to light and sought a stay of the proceedings in the Puducherry Sessions Court.

Justice Suguna had on August 25 stayed the trial for eight weeks.

Sunderesan claimed that the petition had been filed without the petitioner disclosing his interest in the case. If he was not impleaded, great prejudice would be caused to him.

The Judge dismissed a petition filed by one K Thiru Murugan seeking to implead himself in the writ petition on the ground that he was neither a necessary party nor a proper party to the proceedings.
