New Delhi, Aug 23: The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected AIADMK General Secretary V.K.Sasikala’s plea seeking review of its February 14 order restoring her conviction in disproportiote assets case along with her two relatives - V.N. Sudhakaran and J. Elavarasi.

Dismissing the review petition by Sasikala and her two relatives, the bench of Justice S.A. Bobde and Justice Amitava Roy said: “We don’t find any error in the common judgment, much less an apparent error on the face of the record, so as to call for its review.” “The review petitions are accordingly dismissed.”

The top court had on February 14 restored the conviction of Sasikala, Sudhakaran and Elavarasi in the disproportiote assets case, with the bench of Justice Piki Chandra Ghose (since retired) and Justice Roy setting aside a Kartaka High Court order acquitting the three and late Tamil du Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa. Setting aside the High Court order, the top court restored the September 27, 2014 judgment of the trial court convicting and sentencing Sasikala and the other two. (IANS)
