Ram Jethmalani
Bangalore, Sept 28: Senior advocate Ram Jethmalani, who always takes up controversial cases, once again may shock everyone. AIADMK sources informed that Jethmalani is likely to represent Jayalalithaa in higher court.

Jethmalani, who condemned the verdict of disproportionate assets (DA) case involving the AIADMK supremo, may fight for the politician who has been convicted in a 18-year-old DA case.

Jayalalithaa along with her three other aides has been found guilty and has been sent to jail for four years. The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister also has been imposed a fine of Rs 100 crore. Jethmalani condemned the verdict by a special court in Bangalore which did not even grant permission to Jaya to be moved to a private hospital as she was feeling uneasy inside the court premise.
