Eighteen of the 24 accused were present in court when hearing began before the Principal District and Sessions Judge T Ramaswamy.

The absentees included the two seers,who have been charged under various IPC sections for criminal conspiracy and murder.

A total of 121 witnesses have so far been examined since commencement of the trial here, of whom 64 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.

The Judge adjourned the hearing to December 21 and said there would be hearing for three days in a row from that date.

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