Sasikala Files Review Petition In SC
New Delhi: AIDMK leader Sasikala, who is in a Bengaluru jail, filed a review petition in Supreme Court on the verdict which found her guilty and sentenced for four years of imprisonment in graft case.
Along with Sasikala, Jayalalitha’s foster son, Sudhakaran and widow of Sasikala’s elder brother, Elavarsi, also filed review petitions challenging the decision of the trial court in Karnataka.
In the 19-year old Disproportionate Assets (DA) case, the trial court has convicted all the three along with late Jayalalitha.
Sasikala, who was in jail for the past 11 weeks, said in her petition that prevention of corruption law is not applicable to her as proceedings against Amma had ended due to her demise. Irrespective of court findings, she should be set free and let her go back to TN to run the party, Sasikala felt in her petition.
