Jayalalithaa, who has been jailed since last 12 days, yesterday moved to Supreme Court for bail. She urged the apex court to grant an urgent hearing on her plea during the mentioned hour.
Jayalalithaa pleaded that she has been sentenced for 4 years in the disproportionate assets case and she is also suffering from various ailments as grounds for her immediate relief.
She was denied bail on October 07 by the Karnataka High Court, as there were no grounds for it as corruption amounts to “violation of human rights” and must be handled seriously.
Jethmalani who had appeared for the former Tamil Nadu CM, had pleaded for suspension of the sentence by the special court, pending her appeal against it. And she also pleaded that; appeals should be heard within a reasonable period of time.
