Permission sought to prosecute Jayalalitha

The CBI has sought permission from the Tamil Nadu assembly Speaker for prosecuting former Chief Minister Jayalalitha in a case relating to the alleged gift worth over 2 crores received by her in 1990s. The case was initially registered in 1996, under the Prevention of Corruption Act of 1988 on a complaint by the Director General of Income Tax. The case was later transferred to the CBI which has been investigating it for more than a decade. With her party out of Government in both the State and Centre, Jayalalitha would find it increasingly difficult to evade from justice.
