Court sets April 9 as final date for verdict in Satyam case
A special court here trying the multi-crore accounting fraud in erstwhile Satyam Computer Services Limited on Monday said it will pronounce its judgement in the case on April 9. Citing voluminous documents in the case, Special Judge BVLN Chakravarthi said, "On April nine, the judgement will be pronounced. I am making it very clear." "It is mandate of the SC that judgement has to be pronounced. If any obstruction is caused it is contempt of (apex) court...it is your (accused) duty to bring your advocates. Court will go ahead with its proceedings," he said. The judge's observation came as defence counsels were not present in the court ostensibly because of the ongoing agitation of Telangana advocates, who have been boycotting courts demanding separate high court for the new state.
