Following her sentencing in the disproportionate assets case in a court here on Saturday, AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa complained of dizziness. The judge then summoned the prison doctor. Further treatment could be decided by the prison authorities.
Earlier, Special Public Prosecutor Bhavani Singh said AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa would have to approach the Karnataka High Court for bail and a stay on the sentence.
Murugesh S. Maradi, lawyer assisting Mr. Singh, said the prosecution had proved beyond doubt that a sum of about Rs. 53.64 crore was disproportionate to her income against the Rs. 66.65 crore mentioned in the charge sheet.
The court said the fine amount could be adjusted against the properties seized by the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption and attached by the court.
