Sasikala convicted by SC; Gets 4 years jail term and to pay a Rs. 10 crore fine



Long-time Jayalalithaa aide VK Sasikala has been found guilty of corruption by the Supreme Court in the disproportionate assets case and will have to surrender to the police in Chennai so that she can be jailed for four years.
 
She and the other accused will be soon taken into custody for serving out the remaining four years of their sentence. They will also have to pay a fine of Rs 10 crore each.
 
This ends her high-decibel and divisive bid to be Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu - she is now barred from contesting an election for the next ten years.
 
At 10:30 am today, two judges of the Supreme Court delivered their ruling separately, but agreed that Sasikala had, in the early 90's, accumulated an illicit fortune, reports NDTV.
 
The case was originally pivoted on J Jayalalithaa, the four-term Chief Minister who Ms Sasikala lived with, but because she died in December, the judgement does not detail her role. However, the finding rips a huge role through the legacy of Ms Jayalalithaa, beloved "Amma" to lakhs of supporters who accorded her deity-like status and treated her with religious fervor. The case was premised on the fact that during her first term, Jayalalithaa misused her office to accrue 60 cores of assets in a shared fortune with Sasikala and her male relatives, who were later disowned by Amma.
 
As the verdict was delivered, Sasikaka was at a resort on the outskirts of Chennai, where about 120 legislators from her party, the ruling AIADMK, have been stationed for a week to prevent them from switching allegiance to her rival, O Panneerselvam, who took over as Chief Minister after the death of Jayalalithaa, who was his mentor. OPS, as he is known, had refused party orders to facilitate the promotion of Sasikala to the state's top job. Instead, like her, he petitioned Governor C Vidyasagar Rao for the right to take a trust vote in the legislature to prove he is the rightful head of government.

To win, 117 votes are needed.

Sasikala's faction, which has about 125 of the party's 134 MLAs, will now have to elect a new leader who will approach the Governor with a new request for the opportunity to prove his or her majority.

"In the past whenever Amma was in crisis, I also suffered this time also I will take it upon me. 'Dharma' will win", said Sasikala after the verdict, according to ANI, which cited AIADMK sources.

The verdict disqualifies Sasikala from becoming a legislator, and consequentially she can't be chief minister either. This also gives caretaker Tamil Nadu CM O Panneerselvam a huge boost in staking claim to be the legitimate successor to Jayalalithaa, who passed away in December.

Sasikala had staked the claim to be Tamil Nadu chief minister over Panneerselvam. His supporters thronged his residence after the SC decision.

BREAKING NEWS: Strange things happen in Tamil Nadu - Now, SC bench to deliver two judgements in Sasikala case

BREAKING NEWS: Strange things happen in Tamil Nadu - Now, SC bench to deliver two judgements in Sasikala case



Sasikala case suspense continues. Supreme Court cause list for Tuesday is out, and it makes it clear there will be two separate judgments in Sasikala case. Of course, it does not mean there will necessarily be two judgments diametrically opposite to each other or concurring with each other. So, if one judge holds her guilty and the other does not, will conviction stand? Expert legal opinion says it will not. And the case may go to a three-judge SC bench. Alternatively, any concurring judgement may rescind the acquittal, or may refer the case back to the high court for a retrial. Clearly, two separate and opposing judgments will mean good news for Sasikala.

IndiGo passenger opens emergency exit moments before take-off, 1 injured



In a major security scare at Mumbai airport, a passenger of an IndiGo flight opened an emergency exit of the plane moments before the flight was to take-off. A passenger was injured in the incident.
 
An FIR has been filed against the passenger and he has been accused of a "major security breach" on the Mumbai-Chandigarh flight.
 
According to the airline, the incident occurred on its flight 6E 4134 from Mumbai to Chandigarh on Friday morning, when a passenger opened the emergency exit door of the aircraft.
 
"Just after the boarding got completed (while the aircraft was stationary), a passenger seated on seat number 12C suddenly opened the emergency exit door and inflated the slide," the airline said in a statement.
 
 

"In this process, a co-passenger seated on 12A received bruises. Taking a precautionary measure, the captain immediately informed the ground staff about the situation on board and instructed the team to arrange for medical assistance and other necessary action."
 
"Simultaneously, the captain informed all 176 passengers on-board via inflight announcement, and switched off the aircraft engine," the statement pointed out.
 
"Any untoward behaviour which compromises the safety of our passengers, crew or the aircraft is of a serious concern to us. IndiGo has filed an FIR against this passenger. This matter is now with the authorities," the airline said.
 
The passenger was handed over to the security staff and the Central Industrial Security Force, which looks after airport security.
 
The flight was delayed for over two hours due to the incident.
 
IndiGo, a budget airline headquartered in Gurgaon, is one of the most successful private carriers in India.

1984 anti-Sikh riots: CBI seeks permission to conduct lie detector test on Jagdish Tytler

1984 anti-Sikh riots: CBI seeks permission to conduct lie detector test on Jagdish Tytler



A Delhi court on Thursday directed Congress leader Jagdish Tytler to appear before it on Friday after the Central Bureau of Investigation sought permission to have him undergo a lie-detector test in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
 
Besides Tytler, the CBI has also sought conduct of the test on arms dealer Abhishek Verma.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate on Wednesday asked Tytler and Verma to appear before him on Friday at 4 p.m. to ascertain their stand on the plea.
 
The agency moved a written application in the Karkardooma court on Wednesday on the issue after the arms dealer's accusation against the Congress politician of influencing a witness Surender Singh by giving him money and promising to send his son Narender Singh to Canada.
 
The case, which was earlier closed after the CBI gave Tytler a clean chit, was reopened in November 2015 after the wife of riot victim Badal Singh claimed that she had fresh evidence against Tytler. On December 4, 2015, the court had asked the investigating agency to re-examine the case and ascertain the authenticity of Verma’s statement, which claimed Tytler had tried to influence a witness.
 
The agency, in September 2016, had also filed its investigation report in the case which will be heard in the court on Friday where Tytler and Verma are likely to appear.
 
Tytler has denied any role in the riots that took place in North Delhi’s Gurdwara Pulbangash where three people were killed on November 1, 1984. The riots occurred a day after the assassination of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

No more good times: Govt. hands over Vijay Mallya's extradition request to Britain

No more good times: Govt. hands over Vijay Mallya's extradition request to Britain



The government on Thursday took a decisive step to get back liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who is accused of loan default and financial irregularities by investigation agencies.
 
The government on Thursday said that it has given extradition request for the businessman to the UK High Commission.
 
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) informed that it has handed over the extradition request of Vijay Mallya as received from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to the UK High Commission.
 
Under the laws of extradition, a host country is expected to ship back a man wanted for crime in his own country. Commenting on the situation, Swarup said India has an extradition treaty with Britain.
 
"We've today handed over the request for extradition of Vijay Mallya as received from the CBI to the UK High Commission in New Delhi. We have requested the UK side to extradite him to face trial in India," said MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup at a press briefing.
 
Asserting that India has a "legitimate" case against Mr Mallya, he said if an extradition request is honoured, it shows their "sensitivity towards our concerns".

"We have made the extradition request in prescribed format and it is for the UK to deliberate on the request and take further action," he added.

Swarup also said India is yet to make an extradition request for former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi.
 
Mallya fled to Britain in March 2016 after being pursued in courts by banks seeking to recover about Rs 9,000 crore owed by his Kingfisher Airline. Despite multiple injunctions, he has failed to appear before investigators at the Enforcement Directorate in connection with a probe under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
 
Last month, a CBI court had issued a non-bailable warrant against Mallya in the Rs 720-crore IDBI Bank loan default case.
