BANGALORE: Sasikala Natarajan, the estranged friend of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, told a Bangalore court that various allegations were framed against the TN CM by the police 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 answered 40 questions.
Over the last three appearances, Sasikala has answered a total of 103 questions, with more than 1,000 questions yet to be answered by her. The judge, B M Mallikarjunaiah, posed various questions to her on land dealings as there are allegations that the TN CM and Sasikala got lands by threatening its original owners.
Sasikala replied that they had never threatened any land owner and that all purchases were made as per law. Meanwhile, Special Public Prosecutor B V Acharya, requested the judge to direct her to provide mono-syllabic answers - yes or no .
