Cuttack: Bail application of hardcore Maoist leader Sriramulu Srinivasulu is slated to be heard in Orissa High Court on April 14.

Adjourning the hearing to April 14, Justice C R Dash on Wednesday called for the case diaries in the case.

The top Maoist, who was acquitted in a dacoity case earlier this month, is lodged in Malkangiri jail for alleged involvement in assaulting policemen.
