Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramiah told The Hindu that the State government is yet to decide on whether or not it would file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the High Court judgment acquitting AIADMK General Secretary Jayalalithaa in the disproportionate assets case.

The Supreme Court has declared Karnataka the sole prosecuting agency in the case and Mr. Siddaramiah said he has not yet read the judgment and would take a decision after consulting the law department.
