Counsel appointed to aid plea on Jaya wealth case
Bangalore: Karnataka High Court on Thursday appointed senior counsel M T Nanaiah to assist it in hearing of a petition challenging Tamil Nadu DVAC`s decision to conduct further probe in the disproportionate asset case against Chief Minister Jayalalithaa pending in a city court.
Justice V Jagannathan posted the petition filed by DMK General Secretary K Anbazhagan for hearing to September 12 and also extended the stay on further investigation by the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DVAC) till then.
Anbazhagan in his petition filed in July last had alleged Jayalalithaa and three other accused in the case and the DVAC were "hand in glove" and the decision to conduct further probe in the case when the trial was on in a special court here was "only an attempt to destroy the evidence already on record."
The case relating to alleged amassing of assets by Jayalalithaa disproportionate to her known sources of income during her first term as Chief Minister in 1991-96 was
transferred to Bangalore by the Supreme Court in 2003 on a petition by Anbazhagan.
