DA case: Supreme Court convicts VK Sasikala

AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala suffered a major jolt with the Supreme Court upholding the trial court's judgment convicting her in the 21-year-old disproportionate case against her. With this, Sasikala stands disqualified to take over as Tamil Nadu chief minister.The apex court set aside the Karnataka High Court judgment of May 11, 2015 which had acquitted Sasikala and former chief minister late J Jayalalithaa in the Rs 66.65 crore disproportionate assets case. Besides being disqualified to contest elections for six years, Sasikala will also be arrested and sent to jail after the Supreme Court's order.As a consequence, decks are now clear for Tamil Nadu caretaker chief minister O Panneerselvam to take over on the post.
