Jayalalitha-SadBangalore: AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa will have to remain in jail till October 6 after Karnataka high court on Tuesday adjourned the former Tamil Nadu chief minister’s bail plea till Monday.

Jayalalithaa and her three associates had moved the Karnataka high court yesterday, seeking bail and challenging the verdict of the special court, which convicted them in an 18-year-old disproportionate assets case.

As the matter came up, G Bhavani Singh, who was the special public prosecutor in the special court on the disproportionate assets case, told the judge that he had not yet received any official notification appointing him as the SPP for the criminal appeal filed in the high court.

Singh sought more time, at which point vacation bench judge Justice Rathnakala posted the matter for hearing on October 6. In her petitions seeking immediate bail and challenging her sentence, Jayalalithaa has maintained that the charges of amassing wealth against her were false and that she had acquired property through legal means.

Jayalalitha has also contended that the trial court has overlooked several judgments and has not considered the binding nature of various income tax orders and decisions of the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal, which had accepted the income and the level of expenditure pleaded by her.
