SC axes Jayalalithaa plea in assets case
New Delhi, June 17:  The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a plea by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa seeking that the trial in the disproportionate assets case must be put on hold until a Bangalore court decides the ownership of the immovable assets alleged to be hers.

"We find no merit, dismissed," said the apex court bench of Justice Vikramajit Sen and Justice Shiva Kirti Singh, dealing a blow to the chief minister.

The trial in the disproportionate assets, valued at Rs.66 crore, case has been going on in the special court in Bangalore from 2010. In her plea, Jayalalithaa had pleaded the court that trial in the DA case should not proceed till the ownership of the immovable assets shown to be her benami possession was decided as directed by the Madras High Court.
