BANGALORE: Sasikala Natarajan, the former friend of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, on Friday told the court that varioius allegations were levelled against Jayalalithaa by the police in a bid to tarnish her image.

Appearing before the 36th City Civil and Sessions Court and the Special Court hearing the disproportionate assets case against Jayalalithaa on Friday, Sasikala replied to 40 questions.

In three appearances, she has answered a total of 103 questions. Still there are than 1,000 questions to be answered by her. When she was asked about the land that they had got from music director Gangai Amaran, she replied that Amaran himself came forward to sell his land. Meanwhile, the Special Public Prosecutor for the case, B V Acharya, requested the Judge to direct Sasikala to answer the queries in a single word - yes or no - as lengthy explanations were taking more time and delayed the hearing.
