When a court staff nearly lost job for wearing Sudhakaran’s 487-gm gold belt
There is no doubt that the marriage of Sudhakaran the former foster son of Jayalalithaa was a lavish affair. It was this wedding that became the basis of the disproportionate assets case in which a conviction was recorded by the trial court and then the Supreme Court.
There are several incidents that transpired both in and outside the courts which were a subject of discussion for legal correspondents covering the trial. Journalists from Bengaluru and Chennai would very often discuss such incidents over coffee and cigarettes.
