Views: 66

New Delhi, Oct 6 (IANS) The Supreme Court will on Friday hear a plea by rebel AIADMK leader T.T.V. Dinakaran seeking more time to file documents before the poll panel which is hearing rival claims to the party symbol.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud agreed to hear the plea at 2 p.m.

Dinakaran’s counsel V. Singh said they sought to extend the deadline for settling the dispute over the party’s two-leaves electoral symbol as they needed more time to go through about 20,000-pages documents filed by the rival faction and prepare their response.

He said the time was required to cross-examine some of the people who were earlier with Dinakaran but later went back on their statement.
