Supreme Court today said it will hear after two weeks a plea challenging the appointment of 1982 batch IAS officer S R Mohanty as chief secretary of Madhya Pradesh on the ground that he was allegedly involved in a corruption case.

The apex court had on February 15 issued notice to the Centre and other respondents on the petition filed by an advocate practising in MP High Court.
