The final reckoning for Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa will be known on Saturday when the Special Court in Bangalore pronounces its verdict in Rs. 66.65 crore disproportionate assets case against her, which forced her shuttle between Channai and Bangalore for almost 18 years.
Jayalalithaa, 65, and her aide Sasikala will attend the court today to hear the verdict to be delivered by Special Court Judge Michael Dicunha at the makeshift court inside the Bangalore central prison at Parappana Agrahara.
The case was transferred to Bangalore’s Special Court in 2003 by the Supreme Court on a plea by her opponents in DMK as she was the chief minister of Tamil Nadu then. If found guilty, she may have to quit and move the higher court and wait for some more time.
It is reported that as Jayalalithaa and her convoy moved towards the prison, most of her party AIADMK leaders have staioned vehicles 20 metres away from court with VVIP passes.
