The Supreme Court Tuesday reserved its verdict on a batch of appeals filed by Karnataka government and others against the acquittal of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in a disproportionate assets case. A vacation bench of Supreme Court, comprising Justice P C Ghose and Justice Amitava Roy, concluded hearing in the case and reserved the verdict for a later date.

Jayalalithaa was convicted along with Sasikala and two others by a special court in 2014 and sentenced to four years imprisonment for allegedly amassing disproportionate assets to the tune of Rs 66.65 crore during her first term as CM from 1991 to 1996. She was later acquitted by the high court.
