NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Friday refused to entertain a plea of a lawyer seeking direction to Karnataka trial court to defer pronouncement of its verdict in DA case of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

A bench headed by Justice T S Thakur dismissed the plea filed by the lawyer who alleged that there would be law and order problem after the pronouncement of verdict and police might not be able to control the situation.

"Why are you concern about the security. State would take care of it. Who are you and what is your locus in the case," the bench said.

The bench said that if they is any such apprehension then Chief Minister can herself approach it for protection or any one who feels threatened can come to us.

After fighting an 18-year-old legal battle, Jayalalithaa has a date with destiny tomorrow when a Special Court pronounces the verdict in the disproportionate assets case against her and three other accused.

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 in the case that has seen many political and legal twists and turns.

Her close aide Sasikala Natarajan, her niece Ilavarasi and her nephew and Jayalalithaa's disowned foster son Sudhakaran are others listed as accused in the case.

The verdict will be delivered by Special Judge John Michael D'Cunha at a makeshit court in the Parappana Agrahara prison complex with the area in and around turned into a fortress with five layers of security.
