The Supreme Court on Tuesday convicted Sasikala in the Disproportionate Assets Case filed initially against the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and Sasikala and her family members.

Before heading to the jail, Sasikala inducted her nephew TTV Dinakaran in AIADMk as the party deputy general secretary.

The 61-year-old now faces four years in jail and will be barred from contesting elections for the next 10 years.

This comes as a major setback for Sasikala who was aspiring to become the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
