BENGALURU: In a big relief to AIADMK Chief J Jayalalithaa, the Karnataka High Court on Monday gave clean chit to former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jaylalithaa against her conviction in 18-year-old disproportionate assets case.

Security was beefed up across Bengaluru and Tamil Nadu ahead of the verdict by a special bench of the High Court.

On September 27, 2014, a trial court in Bengaluru had convicted Jayalalithaa in 18-year-old disproportionate assets case worth Rs. 66 crore and sentence to four-years in jail. 

However, last year in October, the apex court had granted interim bail to 67-year-old Jayalalithaa till December 18 and later her bail was subsequently extended till May 12.

Jayalalitha verdit

Honest IAS officers get sacked or killed. But high and powerful, blatant corrupt go scot free. May be that Karnataka did not want to have a back lash that she was acquitted. Indian laws are for the rich and powerful and not for the poor who languish Jai Ho
