The top court, earlier in January, dismissed the plea seeking compensation from both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu Governments for the loss of property during the Cauvery water related dispute between both the states.
Siva Kumar, a Tamil Nadu based activist, had earlier filed the petition in the apex court on the same.
The lawyer from the side of Tamil Nadu, Shekhar Naphade, had urged the three-judge bench to bring the matter to a logical end for which there should be a continuous hearing.
On December 9 last year, the apex court upheld its constitutional power and right to hear appeals filed by Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala, against the 2007 Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal final award. (ANI)
