On Monday, Karnataka High Court acquitted AIADM supremo and former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha and all others convicted in the disproportionate assets case clearing her of all the corruption charges.
Setting aside the conviction order by trial court, a single judge of the Karnataka High Court Justice C R Kumaraswamy allowed appeals from Jayalalitha and her associates.
Jayalalithaa was convicted recently and was in prison in Bangalore for twenty days before she was granted bail. Due to the disproportionate assets case, Jayalalithaa was thereby forced to give up her position as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
Also, her associates V N Sudhakaran, J Ilavarasi and V K Sasikala along with her were sentenced to four years in jail by a trial court in September 2014 with a fine of Rs 100 crore and Rs 10 crore each on the others. Jayalalitha was found guilty by the Trial Court for accumulating Rs 58 crore of illegal assets.
