Judges in Jaya graft cases face 'threats'
Two of the three special judges, trying corruption cases against All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazagham chief and former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalitha and others, have received letters threatening them of dire consequences if they proceed against her.
The letters in Tamil were signed by one 'Unmai Vilambi' (one who speaks the truth), highly placed sources said.
The special judges, who received the 'threat' letters, were S Sambandam and V Radhakrishnan. They were yet to make a formal complaint with the police about the letters, the sources added.
Only last week, the Supreme Court had dismissed Jayalalitha's special leave petition challenging the constitution of the special courts.
In all, 46 corruption cases are to be tried by the three special judges against Jayalalitha and her erstwhile cabinet colleagues besides some bureaucrats.
