Sasikala Convicted By SC In Disproportionate Assets Case

The Supreme Court on Tuesday convicted AIADMK general secretary Sasikala in the more than a decade old disproportionate assets case. The court verdict put an end to her bid to become the Chief Minister of the state. Upholding the trail court order, the SC set aside the High Court judgment which had acquitted Sasikala and former chief minister Jayalalithaa in the case. “Nevertheless, we reiterate that having regard to the facts, the charge framed against them by the trial court is restored,” the bench said.
