Sasikala case verdict: Read the Supreme Court's judgment on disproportionate assets case

On a dramatic Tuesday morning, AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala found herself convicted by the Supreme Court in the disproportionate assets case. In so doing, the apex court set aside the Karnataka High Court verdict that had acquitted her in the case filed in 1996 that also involved late chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

The apex court restored in toto the judgment and findings of a trial court in Bengaluru, which had initially held guilty all the accused, including Sasikala's two relatives, VN Sudhakaran and Elavarasi. The two-judge bench comprising Justices PC Ghose and Amitava Roy directed Sasikala, Sudhakaran and Elavarasi to surrender forthwith to the trial court in Bengaluru and serve the remaining part of a four-year jail term.

The full text of the judgment is below:
