New Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said on Saturday that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa would most likely face conviction for allegedly obtaining disproportionate assets during her first tenure as Chief Minister from 1991 to 1996.

"I think it is very difficult for her to escape it as the facts are very clear. It is an open and shut case. She is likely to be convicted and ceased to be chief minister," Swamy told ANI here.

Earlier today, security was beefed up outside the special court in Bangalore, which is all set to pronounce its verdict on the almost two decades old disproportionate assets case against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

The former friend of AIADMK chief, V K Sasikala, V N Sudhakaran and J Illavarasi are the co-accused in the case.

Earlier on Friday, the Supreme Court had rejected Jayalalithaa's plea to postpone the pronouncement of its verdict in the disproportionate assets case.
