SC to deliver verdict in DA case involving Sasikala, security beefed up in Tamil Nadu


Chennai: The fate of Sasikala, fighting a bitter power battle with interim Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam after the demise of J Jayalithaa, is likely to be decided today as the Supreme Court may deliver the much-awaited verdict in the disproportionate assets case involving her as an accused.

Security has been stepped up across Tamil Nadu as a precautionary measure ahead of the verdict in the case.


Additional police has been deployed at the Chief Minister’s Greenways road residence and Raj Bhavan besides Koovathur resort where AIADMK MLAs supporting party chief V K Sasikala are staying, the police said.

Besides Jayalalithaa, against whom the proceedings would be abated due to her demise on December 5 last year, Sasikala, and the latter’s relatives, VN Sudhakaran and Elavarasi, were also acquitted in the assets case by the Karnataka High Court.
