Bangalore: After a gap of over seven months, the recording of the statement of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa`s close aide Sasikala Natarajan resumed on Wednesday before the special court trying the disproportionate assets case against them.
Appearing before Special Judge MS Balakrishna, Sasikala replied to 110 questions framed by the court, taking the total number of questions answered till today to 742 out of the total over a 1,000. The Judge adjourned the matter to tomorrow.
The questions posed by the court today mainly pertained to transfer of money to the partnership firms of Sasikala and Jayalalithaa and also amounts going into their individual accounts.
Sasikala had last appeared for recording of her statement on May 2, 2012. Till then she had answered 632 questions.
