Jaya challenges lower court order in Income Tax cases

Written by: Staff

Chennai, Jul 4 (UNI) Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa, today filed a petition before Madras High Court, challenging an order of the lower court, dismissing her petition, seeking to discharge her from the income tax cases pending against her.

However, this revision petition was yet to be numbered.

The Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (Economic Offences-I) J V Raju had on June 14, dismissed the petitions filed by Ms Jayalalithaa and her close aide Sasikala Natarajan, seeking to discharge them from the income tax cases pending against them.

Holding that there is prima facie grounds that the petitioner has wilfully failed to furnish the returns at present, the judge dismissed the petitions and said after considering the oral evidence and materials, this court was of the view that there are sufficient grounds for proceeding against the petitioners.

The case related to non-filing of income tax returns by Ms Jayalalithaa and Sasikala for the assessment year 1993-94.

In another case, in which M/s Sasi Enterprises was cited as accused, the two again failed to file returns in their capacity as partners of the firm for the assessment year 1991-92 and 1992-93.
