Shocking: Supreme Court reveals Jayalalithaa is not a Convict

The Supreme Court today made some sensational comments on the charges against Tamil Nadu Chief Minsiter Jayalalithaa who passed away during December last year. A Karnataka court recently announced that Jayalalithaa has been convicted in disproportionate assets case and announced a fine of Rs 100 crores. The apex court rejected a review petition filed by the Karnataka government challenging the ‘abatement’ of its appeal in the DA case. The SC, on February 14, convicted Sasikala and two other accused in the case – Sudhakaran and Ilaivarasi, to four years in prison, but abated charges against Jayalalithaa, since the leader had passed away before the court passed its judgement.
