The Special Court trying the disproportionate assets case against former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Thursday adjourned the case to March 22.

Special Court judge B. M. Mallikarjunaiah adjourned it to March 22, in view of the memo filed by Special Public Prosecutor B. V. Acharya stating the Special Leave Petition filed by Ms. Jayalalithaa in the case is coming up before the Supreme Court on Friday.

When the case came up for hearing on March 3, Justice Mallikarjunaiah had ordered 42 prosecution witnesses to be summoned for cross examination between March 18-26. The order was passed on a memo filed by Mr. Acharya for recalling 45 witnesses.
