BANGALORE: Sasikala, the former friend of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, appeared before the 36th City Civil and Sessions Court and the Special Court hearing the disproportionate assets case against Jaya on Saturday and replied to 69 questions, thereby completing 172 questions.
Most of the questions were related to the purchase of vehicles in her name for Sasi Enterprises, Anjaneya Printers, JJ TV, Metal King, Jaya Publications and Namadhu MGR newspaper. Sasikala admitted that vehicles were purchased in her name but there was no irregularity in the purchase of vehicles. When she was asked whether the accused had purchased properties on the outskirts of Chennai, Vellore and other areas by threatening land owners, she said that the allegations were baseless and alleged that the police were threatening a witness to frame her and Jayalalithaa.
Before this, the Judge B M Mallikarjunaiah rejected the plea filed by counsels of three accused requesting him to conduct proceedings for three days in a week.
