BANGALORE: A petition was filed today by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in a special court here seeking security cover for appearing before it in the wealth case filed against her and three others, on September 20 when the verdict would be pronounced.

Special Public Prosecutor Bhavani Singh said Jayalalithaa has filed the petition for security cover citing threat perception as she has been accorded Z Plus security cover.

The Special Court Judge John Michael Cunha posted the matter for hearing tomorrow.

The court, after a gap of 18 years, will deliver its judgement in the matter on September 20. The court had directed all the four accused, including Jayalalithaa, to appear before it on that date.

Jayalalithaa has been charged with accumulating Rs 66 crore wealth disproportionate to known sources of her income from 1991-96 in her first term as Chief Minister.
