A new bench will consider the bail plea of Bineesh Kodiyeri. The decision was taken after the judge, who heard the plea so far, informed that he will be going on leave. This is the 16th time the Karnataka high court is considering the bail plea of Bineesh Kodiyeri.

As soon as the hearing started, the judge announced that he would be going on leave and asked to continue the hearing in front of a new bench.

Though Bineesh’s layer requested for retaining the same bench, the advocate of the Enforcement Directorate stated that they are willing to present the case in front of any bench.

Although Bineesh’s lawyer requested a two-day parole to meet his parents, the lawyer representing ED opposed this. The next hearing has been postponed to next Monday. Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi represented ED in court.
