Exit Sasikala from T.N politics

The Supreme court today convicted V.K.Sasikala in the disproportionate assets case for 4 years. By doing so the court set aside the acquittal of the Karnataka High court in the Jayalalithaa disproportionate assets case and “restored in full” the trial court conviction of September 2014.

Sasikala disqualified  to contest elections for 10 years

Passing the decisive judgement, the Supreme court  Bench of Justices P.C. Ghose and Amitava Roy also set aside the acquittal of her two co-accused J. Ilavarasi and V.N. Sudhakaran and restored their conviction .  Even after Sasikala comes out after serving her four-year sentence, she would be disqualified to contest elections for the next six years as per the Supreme Court judgment.

Pay  fine of Rs. 10 crore each

Along  with the 4-year imprisonment , the court also ordered the 3 accused to pay a fine of 10 crore each.

It must be recalled that the accused number 1 in this disproportionate assets case is J.Jayalalitaa, the late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. The SC also said the appeal  filed by Karnataka government and DMK leader K. Anbazhagan  against the former Chief Minister has abated after her death on December 5, 2016.
