In a verdict that can have implications for Sasikala, who is set to take over as chief minister, the Supreme Court today indicated it could give its judgement on the appeals challenging the acquittal of late Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa in a disproportionate assets case, also involving her.

A bench headed by Justice P C Ghose asked senior advocate Dushyant Dave representing Karnataka to wait for one week after he made a mention before it regarding the delay in pronouncement of the verdict.

Dave said that they have been waiting for the judgement for quite some time and requested the bench to pronounce it soon.

The apex court had last year, before the demise of Jayalalithaa, reserved its verdict on a batch of petitions challenging the order of her acquittal of the Karnataka High Court.

Sasikala, a shadow of Jayalalithaa for nearly three decades, is set to become the chief Minister of Tamil Nadu as the AIADMK Legislature Party yesterday elected her as its leader, over a month after she became the party's powerful General Secretary.

In case the Supreme Court upholds the lower court order convicting Sasikala and others, she may have to step down from the post she is likely to take over.
