In a major relief to jailed AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa, the Supreme Court on Friday granted her bail in a disproportionate assets case in which she was sentenced to four-year jail term. Her supporters in Tamil Nadu and Bangalore welcomed the judgement and celebrated it.
A bench headed by Chief Justice HL Dattu stayed the sentence and warned Jayalalithaa against causing any delay by seeking adjournment in her appeal in Karnataka High Court.
