New Delhi, Dec 7 (TIWN) The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it is not keen on granting any further adjournments on the plea of A.G. Perarivalan, convicted for former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination, seeking remission of his sentence.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Centre, contended before a bench headed by Justice L. Nageswara Rao and also comprising Justices B.R. Gavai and B.V. Nagarathna that he had to appear before other courts in part heard matters and sought an adjournment in the Perarivalan matter. He urged the top court to schedule the matter for hearing later this week.  The bench, however, said Mehta should have informed it about his schedule earlier.  Expressing its dissatisfaction with the request for adjournment, the bench told Mehta: “What do we do? If everything is adjourned… You should tell us early.”  Senior advocate Gopal Sankaranaraya
