Jayalalitha Disproportionate Assets case: Court reserves judgement

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its judgement in Jayalalithaa disproportionate assets case. Besides Jayalalithaa, others accquited by the High Court in this case were her close aide, Sasikala and her relatives, VN Sudhakaran and Elavarasi. 
The apex court has also asked the Karnataka authorities to file their response by Friday.  While AIADMK hopes their leader will come out clear, the SC may even order a re-trial.
The case has been going on for the past 18 years, going back to 1996 when Dr. Subramanian Swamy filed a complaint against the Tamil Nadu CM.
The vacation bench comprising Justices PC Ghose and Amitava Roy had, in the matter, last week heard at length the Special Public Prosecutor of Karnataka.
The AIADMK chief was convicted by a trial court of misusing her position as the Chief Minister between 1991 and 1996 to amass disproportionate assets of nearly Rs. 67 crore.
The Karnataka High Court overturned that verdict and acquitted her last year. 

The verdict on this case will indeed have great implications on Jaya's political career.

Jaya case

It is a reminder to Modi and BJP. Pls keep out of this case. Already talks are going all around India that Modi is helping jaya to come out of this case. Don't involve and get your name spoiled. Already you would have seen that congress was thrown out of power only on account of corruption. so don;t do the mistake of supporting this unreliable lady. She may ditch you tomorrow. Everyone knows the judgement of kumarasamy was wrong. But still SC observations are gooing towards jaya's acquittal in this case.

Judgement reserved

Ok. You please vote DMK in the next election also.
