As senior advocate Siddharth Luthra, appearing for Naidu, tried to mention for urgent hearing the plea, which was not listed in mentioning list, the bench asked him to mention it tomorrow. Luthra told the bench that the case is related to the State of Andhra Pradesh where the opposition is being curbed.
A bench of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra said, “Come tomorrow in the mentioning list.”
Naidu approached the Supreme Court against High Court order which declined to quash the FIR on Friday. He sought quashing of FIR registered by AP-CID in the alleged ₹371 crore skill development scam on the ground that the police did not obtain prior sanction from the Governor as mandated under Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act.-OPB
