Divan also asked the Court to accept the Respondent's plea for expedited hearing, while Rohatgi said that the Respondents had taken 20 adjournments and that "if they can't meet the exigencies, they should give it up."

He was barred from Bellary as a condition for his release on bail in 2015. [READ ORDER]
