Bangalore: The Special Court trying the wealth case against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Thursday adjourned to April 18, further recording of the statement of Sasikala Natarajan, her close aide and co accused in the case.

Earlier, Sasikala's counsel C Manishankar filed an application under Section 309 CrPC, seeking time since the criminal petition filed by him in the High Court, challenging this court's rejection of her application seeking various documents, will come up for hearing on April 16.
The application was opposed by Special Public Prosecutor B V Acharya, who said they were trying to protract the proceedings on some reason or the other.

Special Court judge B M Mallikarjunaiah after hearing both sides adjourned the case to April 18.
