Sankararaman murder case: Puducherry govt to appeal against acquittal of Kanchi seers, others

Written By kom nampultig on Senin, 07 Juli 2014 | 08.20

PUDUCHERRY: The Puducherry government has decided to file an appeal against a local court order that acquitted Kanchi seers Jayendra Saraswathi and Vijayendra Saraswathi and 22 others in the Sankararaman murder case.

Lt Governor Virendra Kataria issued orders to the special public prosecutor N Devadass on Monday directing him to file an appeal.

Tamil Nadu ADSP (CBCID) Backia Parimala collected the orders from the prosecutor. The prosecutor will soon file an appeal in the Madras high court.

Principal district and sessions judge C S Murugan in November last year acquitted the seers and 22 accused pointing out that the prosecution failed to prove the motive of the murder. Most of the main witnesses turned hostile.

As many as 187 witnesses were examined and re-examined by the prosecution and defence counsels. Eighty-two witnesses and a lone approver, Ravi Subramanian, turned hostile.

The judgment came more than nine years after Sankararaman, manager of Sri Varadharajaswamy temple in Kancheepuram, who had levelled charges of financial mismanagement against the Kanchi seers, was found murdered on September 3, 2004.

The Kanchi seers were charged with criminal conspiracy, misleading the court by giving false information, criminal trespass and supply of funds to carry out criminal activities.

The Puducherry principal district and sessions court began the trial in November 2005. The murder case that attained nationwide attention took several twists and turns including charges against the seer for attempting to influence the judiciary.

Four judges -- M Chinapandi, D Krishnaraja, T Ramasamy and C S Murugan -- heard the trial that had lasted for more than nine years.
