Rajnath refuses to comment on Jayalalitha’s conviction



Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday refused to comment on the conviction of AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalitha by a Bangalore court in an 18-year-old disproportionate asset case.

“I will not comment on it as I have not seen the judgement,” he told PTI here when asked to comment on the conviction of Ms. Jayalalitha.

The 66-year-old AIADMK supremo has also been slapped with a fine of Rs 100 crore, highest imposed on any politician, by a special judge John Michael D’Cunha who heard the case of Rs 66.65 crore disproportionate assets acquired during her first term as Chief Minister between 1991 and 1996.
