The Supreme Court is likely to pronounce the verdict in 19-year-old disproportionate assets case of AIADMK general secretary Sasikala today at 10.30 am.
It's judgement day for AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala Natarajan and her bid to become the chief minister of Tamil Nadu. In a highly anticipated verdict, a two-judge bench of Supreme Court will give their judgements today in the disproportionate asset case.
Sasikala is named as accused No. 2 alongwith the late J Jayalalithaa, who together allegedly amassed wealth which is said to be disproportionate to their known sources of income. When the verdict comes, as in the scenarios discussed below, it will prove crucial in the battle between Sasikala and caretaker CM O Panneerselvam on who becomes the next chief minister of Tamil Nadu.
A two judge bench, including Justice PC Ghose and Justice Amitava Roy, are scheduled to assemble at 10.30 am in the Supreme Court to deliver the verdict in the case. Meanwhile, local police in Tamil Nadu has beefed up security outside Sasikala's Poes Garden residence and the Golden Bay where several AIADMK MLAs are staying.
