Bangalore: The Special Court trying the wealth case against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Tuesday rejected the application of her aide and co-accused Sasikala Natarajan seeking various documents filed by the prosecution but not marked as exhibits in court.

Special Court judge BM Mallikarjunaiah rejected the application filed by C Manishankhar and adjourned the case to April 12 for further recording of the statement of Sasikala under section 313 of the CrPC.

Manishankhar had filed an application under 207, 243(2) of CrPC read with Rule 2 of Chapter 14 of Karnataka Criminal Rules of Practice 1968, seeking various documents filed by the prosecution but which have not been marked as exhibits.

Manishankhar had submitted that unless the documents are furnished, it would not be possible for Sasikala to satisfactorily explain the questions put to her by the court under section 313 CrPC.

The case, relating to alleged accumulation of wealth by Jayalalithaa when she was Chief Minister from 1991-95, had been transferred to Bangalore by the Supreme Court.
