Here's how the family drama plot unveils:
1:27 pm: SC grants bail to Jayalalithaa's close aide Sasikala and her relatives VN Sudhakaran & Ilavarasi also in DA case.
12:40 pm: Jaya not to leave house till Dec 18. Till that time, the AIADMK has to file a report to SC, failing which the bail will be cancelled
12:36 pm: Nariman has assured the court that Jayalalitha will write to her supporters to behave properly.
12:34 pm: Karnataka High Court is yet to suspend the charges; her bail will be granted if it is suspended
12:27 pm: SC suspends Jayalalithaa's sentence; Jaya gets interim bail
12:15 pm: Jaya's lawyer says that he is pleading for bail only on health grounds.
