Jayalalithaa's bail plea rejected, AIADMK cadres back in protest mode
Tuesday October 7, 2014 5:51 PM, IANS

The Karnataka High Court Tuesday rejected the bail petition of jailed former Tamil Nadu chief minister J. Jayalalithaa, abruptly ending frenzied celebrations by her supporters after one of her lawyers earlier said she had been granted conditional bail.

Justice A.V. Chandrashekara, who heard Jayalalithaa's petition, also declined to suspend the four-year jail term even after Special Public Prosecutor G. Bhavani Singh submitted he had no objection to the bail.

The AIADMK leader was convicted and sentenced for four years and fined Rs.100 crore for corruption by a special court here Sep 27.

The joy of AIADMK cadres assembled outside the party office and the residence of former chief minister J. Jayalalithaa was short-lived and they are back in the protest mode.

Party cadres erupted in joy after television channels said Jayalalithaa was granted conditional bail by the Karnataka High Court.

AIADMK cadres - men and women - assembled outside Jayalalithaa's residence and the party headquarters here and danced in joy. They burst crackers and distributed sweets.

However their joy turned out to be short-lived as channels soon started saying that she was denied bail.

While some went away from the scene others sat on the road in protest demanding her release.

A special court Sep 27 convicted Jayalalithaa for corruption and jailed her for four years. She was also fined Rs.100 crore. Since then, she is in the Bangalore Central Jail.
