SC likely to deliver seperate verdicts in Jaya DA case tomorrow
The Supreme Court will deliver its verdict in the Jayalalithaa Disproportionate Assets case on Tuesday. Seperate verdicts will be delivered by a Bench comprising Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy at 10.30 am. The verdict was reserved for orders in June 2016. If a split verdict is delivered by the Bench then it would be referred to a three judge bench.
Earlier Karnataka once again reminded the Supreme Court about the verdict in the case. Dushyanth Dave who appeared for the state of Karnataka sought to know about the order. He said that he is unable to enter into the court as it is too crowded. The court however told him, " you will come to know when we pass an order."
The court had on Monday last told Karnataka the prosecuting state in the case an order would be passed in one week's time. The court had however not indicated any particular date for the same. The order would however not be passed today as one of the judges on the Bench, Justice Amitava Roy is not sitting.
Sources say that in all probability a verdict may be delivered on Tuesday. The cause list of the Supreme Court which is uploaded by 6.30 pm will give a clear indication of the same.
The DA case verdict is crucial since Sasikala Natarajan, the Chief Minister in waiting was an accused in it. She along with Jayalalithaa and two others were acquitted in the case by the Karnataka High Court following which an appeal was preferred in the Supreme Court. The SC had reserved its verdict in June 2016.
