Supreme Court closes the last case pending against Jayalalithaa

Eight months after the death of former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa, the supreme court has pulled curtains down in the last case pending before the Supreme Court since 2017.

The petitioner AKS Vijayan demanded that Jayalalithaa be prosecuted for offences committed under Section 177 of the Indian Penal Code.

The case pertains to nominations from 4 constituencies of Andipatti, Krishnagiri, Bhuvanagir and Pudukottai in Assembly elections at a time when she was disqualified by Supreme Court following conviction in TANSI land scam.

The bench took note of her death via statement produced by her counsel and rendered the case infructuous.
