BANGALORE: Sasikala, the estranged companion of Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalithaa, appeared before the 36th City Civil and Sessions Court and the Special Court for  hearing of the disproportionate assets case against Jaya.Sasikala appeared on Saturday and replied to 69 questions, thereby completing 172 questions.
Most of the questions were related to the  purchase of vehicles in her name for Sasi Enterprises, Anjaneya Printers, JJ TV, Metal King, Jaya Publications and Namadhu MGR newspaper. Sasikala admitted vehicles were purchased in her name but there was no irregularity in the dealings.
When she was asked about whether the accused persons purchased properties on the the outskirts of Chennai, Vellur and other areas by threatening land owners, she said  the allegations were baseless and accused   the police of threatening a witness to frame Jayalalithaa and her.
Earlier, Judge B M Mallikarjunaiah rejected the plea filed by the counsels of the  three accused to conduct three-day proceedings in a week.
Advocates Manishankar and Kumar, representing Sasikala, Ilavarasi and Sudhakaran, appealed to the judge to hold hearings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday as daily attendance will be inconvenient for the accused.
However, the judge said the court will conduct daily proceedings as per higher court, including the Supreme Court orders.
Further, the hearing was adjourned to February 29.
