SC transfers Jaya cases to Bangalore

November 18, 2003 10:59 IST

The Supreme Court on Tuesday transferred the trial of two disproportionate asset cases against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa from Chennai to Bangalore.

Allowing a transfer petition by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam general secretary K Anbazghan, a bench comprising Justice S N Variava and Justice H K Sema directed the Karnataka high court chief justice to constitute a special court and appoint a public prosecutor for conducting the trial.

Jayalalithaa is accused of amassing wealth to the tune of Rs 66 crore disproportionate to her income.

Thank God for SC's intervention, otherwise she would have got herself acquitted in these cases also.
