New Delhi [India], Feb. 14 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday expressed confidence that the Supreme Court would convict All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazagham (AIADMK) general secretary V.K. Sasikala in disproportionate assets case. "This case got initiated after I submitted the documents to the Supreme Court. We have argued about the case in detail as we have fought at every level. I expect we would emerge victorious. We have to see on which basis she will get conviction. I know the case very well and expect that she will be convicted," Swamy, who is the complainant in the case against Sasikala, said. The pending disproportionate assets case dates back to 1996. J. Jayalalithaa, Sasikala and her two relatives, Ilavarasi and Sudhagaran, had been convicted in the case that alleged that the former chief minister owned assets far exceeding her known sources of income. After they were acquitted in 2015, an appeal was filed in the Supreme Court. If convicted, Sasikala will not be able to stand for elections for six years and hold public office. (ANI)
