BANGALORE: Amid tight security, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa arrived here this morning to appear in a special court which is set to pronounce the verdict in an 18-year-old disproportionate assets case against her that could have far reaching implications for her government.

The AIADMK chief flew in here by a special aircraft at the HAL Airport along with the other accused -- her close aide Sasikala Natarajan and Ilavarasi, the latter's relative, and headed towards the court by road.

Sasikala's nephew and Jayalalithaa's disowned foster son Sudhakaran, is the fourth accused in the case in which the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has been charged with accumulating Rs 66.65 crore wealth disproportionate to her known sources of income from 1991-96 in her first term in office.

The verdict will be delivered at the makeshift court at Parappana Agrahara prison complex. The one kilometre area around it has been turned into a fortress with massive deployment of security personnel.

Police are also closely checking vehicles with Tamil Nadu registration at the check post at Attibeli on the border. AIDMK supporters had gathered at the border but were stopped by police, who have been deployed in strength.
