Sasikala convicted in Disproportionate Asset case, sentenced to jail for 4 years
New Delhi: In a major setback for AIADMK General Secretary and Tamil Nadu aspiring Chief Minister Sasikala Natarajan, the Supreme Court on Tuesday convicted her in 21-year-old disproportionate assets case.
A division bench of Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Justice Amitava Roy set aside a Karnataka High Court order staying the conviction of Sasikala and three by a trial court.
The court directed Sasikala and the others to “immediately” surrender before the trial court and ordered them to serve the remaining portion of their jail term. Justice Roy, in a concurring judgment, expressed deep concern over the “escalating menace of corruption in society”.
