The Madras High Court will pass orders on November 2 on a petition by a Sri Lankan Minister seeking to set aside a 1994 order declaring him as a ‘proclaimed offender’ in a murder case in Chennai.
Justice G.M.Akbar Ali fixed the date for orders after hearing arguments by the Minister’s counsel R.Rajan and the government side.
