The trial court had framed 1,339 questions for Ms Jayalalithaa but she replied to only 567 questions on her appearances before the court in Oct. Jaya still needs to answer the remaining 768 questions.

Meanwhile, the Karnataka government has provided the best security. Around 1,500 policemen were posted for her security with 20 cars on escort from the airport to Bangalore's Central Prison where the hearing is held.
