Jayalalithaa earlier had moved the apex court seeking exemption from the court hearing which has been scheduled to be held on Thursday. The court, however, upset the Tamil Nadu CM and asked her to appear in the Bangalore court.
Jayalalithaa now has to face the court trial which would be held in a special cell of central jail in the Garden City.
Rubbishing Jayalalithaa's fear over inappropriate security in the city, Karnataka Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda said, "As far as law and order is concerned, we are very serious. From our side we are fully prepared to give security."
Here it can be recalled that Jayalalithaa was booked over accumulating disproportionate wealth when she was the CM of Tamil Nadu during 1991 to 1996.
