Jaya DA case verdict on Sept 20

Jaya DA case verdict on Sept 20
The special CBI court hearing the disproportionate assets case against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha will pronounce its judgment on September 20.

Special court judge John Micheal Kunha will pronounce the judgment, putting an end to the trial which went on for years after witnessing several twists and turns.

In the mid-90s, Jayalalitha was booked for amassing wealth to the tune of Rs 66 crore–which was disproportionate to her known sources of income–following a complaint by a DMK worker. 

The case was transferred to Bangalore from Chennai in 2003 following a petition by the DMK alleging that with Jaya­la­litha as chief minister, a fair trial was not possible in the state.
 
Jayalalitha is the accused number one in the case followed by Shashikala Natarajan, Sudhakaran–foster son of Jayalalitha–and Illavarasi.
