The apex court whihc extended the hearing by another six months also told him that the case will not be delayed further. It was on February 16 that the trial court judge Honey M Varghese submitted a letter to the supreme court via the high court registrar seeking to extend the trial period in the case by six months.

The prosection has not presented the plea to change the trial court so far.
