The trial dates have been set from the 10th to the 21st of June, however, prosecutor Seruvatu informed the court of a potential disruption of two days during the trial, as they would need to attend their annual conference.

In response, defense counsel Anil Prasad disclosed plans to request access to the exhibits for use during the trial.

Moreover, the judge raised the possibility of visiting the crime scene during the trial week, emphasizing the significance of firsthand observation.

Arrangements for such a visit will be made in advance to facilitate this.

The case will be recalled on the 28th of May.
