The Supreme Court on Monday has issued a notice to Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa on a batch of petitions challenging her acquittal in the disproportionate case by the High Court of Karnataka. A bench headed by Justice PC Ghose had agreed to hear the petitions challenging the Karnataka high court verdict acquitting Jayalalithaa and her associates in the case in which a trial court had sentenced her to four years in jail.

"The HC has reversed the judgment and order of the trial court on untenable grounds, ignoring the material and clinching evidence which proved the case of the prosecution. The HC has chosen to reverse the judgment for no valid reasons at all," the petition said.

"It is respectfully submitted that the conclusions reached by the judge are not based on a proper appreciation of evidence and the conclusions reached are bordering on perversity and is, therefore, liable to be set aside. The judgment lacks reasoning, is not logical and is cryptic. The evidence has not been considered objectively and lacks deliberation," it added.

The apex court bench headed by Justice PC Ghose has issued the notice returnable in eight weeks on the petition filed by DMK leader K Anbazhagan and BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, both challenging Karnataka High Court verdict acquitting Jayalalithaa.
