Supreme Court refuses to stay trial against Jayalalithaa in assets case

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Tuesday dismissed a plea by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa seeking that the trial in the disproportionate assets case must be put on hold until a Bangalore court decides the ownership of the immovable assets alleged to be hers.

"We find no merit, dismissed," said the apex court bench of Justice Vikramajit Sen and Justice Shiva Kirti Singh, dealing a blow to the chief minister.

The trial in the disproportionate assets, valued at Rs.66 crore, case has been going on in the special court in Bangalore from 2010.
