Jayalalitha trial at Central Prisons

Jayalalitha trial at Central Prisons

Senior police officials speaking on condition of anonymity said that after much deliberation the court agreed to hear the case at Parappana Agrahara. “The trial against the Dandupalya gang was conducted there. The court decided to utilise the existing set-up,” the police officer said. The trial of the Dandupalya gang had taken place on the same premises in 2002. The City police had suggested four venues for the trial, including Parappana Agrahara, Karnataka Judicial Academy and Jakkur Flying Club, for security reasons.

The Supreme Court had asked Jayalalitha to appear in person before the Bangalore trial court on October 20 in the disproportionate assets case.

HC rules out CBI probe

The Division Bench of the High Court has stayed the order of the single judge directing a CBI probe into the murder of Naushad Kashimji, an advocate. Kashimji was shot dead on April 9, 2009 and his wife, Nusrath Jahan had petitioned the High Court seeking a CBI inquiry alleging that the police had failed to collect evidences. The single judge had allowed the petition.

The State government, which went in appeal, had claimed that the probe by the police was impartial.
