The verdict place an end for her from becoming the Chief Minister of the state. Upholding the trail court order, the SC set aside the High Court judgment which had acquitted Sasikala and former chief minister Jayalalithaa in the case. The court asked Sasikala to surrender immediately.
According to the charge sheet, former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa with the co-accused Sasikala, Ilavarasi and Sudhakaran allegedly conspired to amass assets to the tune of Rs 66.65 crore,which was disproportionate to her disclosed sources of income. The prosecution alleged that while Jayalalithaa was the prime accused, the other three abetted the offence by acting as benami owners of 32 private firms.
