4 Years Jail For Sasikala In DA Case
In a big setback to chief ministerial ambitions of Jayalalithaa aide and AIADMK interim general secretary Sasikala, the Supreme Court on Tuesday sentenced Sasikala to four years’ jail term in the disproportionate assets case.
She has been sent to four years in jail plus a fine of Rs 10 crore, and the conviction effectively means she will be debarred from taking part in electoral politics.
The apex court restored in toto the judgement and the findings of the trial court in Bengaluru which had held guilty all the accused including Sasikala’s two relatives, V N Sudhakaran and Elavarasi.
The two-judge bench comprising Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy directed Sasikala and the two relatives to surrender forthwith to the trial court in Bengaluru and serve the remaining part of four year jail term.
