Following the plea, the case was posted for a detailed hearing and production of more evidence to Feb 28.

Vattukulam had filed a complaint alleging that Balakrishnan's brother, K G Bhaskaran, former special government pleader in kerala high court and his two sons-in-laws, P V Sreenijan and M A Benny had amassed wealth disproportionate to their known sources of income and a probe should be launched against them.

Following media reports that Sreenijan, an advocate and former youth congress leader had purchased various properties and amassed wealth beyond his known sources of income, he resigned from the party. Bhaskaran also resigned following intense media heat over the allegations. He was asked by Advocate General, C P Sudhakara Prasad to resign or demit office.
