Heard learned counsel for the parties and perused the counter affidavit filed on behalf of the Respondent Nos. 1 and 2.

We are not inclined to interfere with the impugned order in exercise of jurisdiction under Article 136 of the Constitution of India.

The special leave petition is, accordingly, dismissed.

However, we request the Trial Court to conclude the trial, which we are informed has commenced, as expeditiously as possible, preferably within six months from the date of communication of this order.

Pending applications, if any, shall also stand disposed of.
