Jayalalithaa DA case: SC reserves its judgement

New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its judgement on the petition filed by the Karnataka Government and others against acquittal of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa in the disproportionate assets case.

The apex court has asked the Karnataka Government and other respondents to file their written submissions by June 10.

The vacation bench comprising Justices, P.C. Ghose and Amitava Roy had in the matter last week heard at length the Special Public Prosecutor of Karnataka.

The AIADMK chief was convicted by a trial court of misusing her position as the Chief Minister between 1991 and 1996 to amass disproportionate assets of nearly Rs. 67 crore.

The Karnataka High Court overturned that verdict and acquitted her last year. (ANI)
