The Supreme Court will hear the petition seeking transfer of conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar and his wife from Tihar Jail to any other jail from Tuesday, June 21.
On behalf of the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the Supreme Court that the probe agency has filed an application on this matter. For which, the hearing is to be held tomorrow while the hearing on Sukesh’s case was to be held today.
The ED is not a party in this case, Mehta said. There is a serious allegation against Sukesh Chandrashekhar in this case, so the ED’s side should also be heard, the SG said.
The Solicitor General said the probe agency has to clarify things in the Supreme Court. Therefore, Mehta asked the court that today’s hearing on Sukesh’s case should be heard tomorrow along with the ED’s petition. Later, the top court agreed to it.
Now the hearing on both the cases will be held on June 21.
