The Supreme Court is likely to pronounce its verdict on a corruption case against AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala on Tuesday.
Earlier, Karnataka govt had filed a plea challenging the high court acquittal of VK Sasikala and three others in the Rs 63-crore disproportionate assets case.
Former Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa was the the main accused in the case, but after her death it stands abated. Apart from Sasikala, her sister-in-law Ilavarsi and Jayalalithaa’s foster son Sudhakaran (whom she later disowned) are also facing the trial.
The verdict is expected to end the ongoing political turmoil in the state as reports suggest that Tamil Nadu Governor will take a call on the matter after the judgement.
