Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Friday adjourned hearing of the petition of the survivor in the 2017 actress attack case to June 1. The court adjourned the matter as the state government sought more time to furnish the explanation on the survivor’s plea alleging political intervention in the ongoing investigation into the case.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that the prosecution will also request the HC for an extension of three months for submitting the further investigation report on the case. It may be noted that HC earlier had directed the prosecution to complete the investigation by May 30 and submit the report before the trial court by May 31.

It was at this juncture that the survivor moved a plea requesting to avoid submission of the further investigation report in a hurried manner. Following that, she met CM Pinarayi Vijayan and shared her concerns.
