It started in 1996 with Dr Subramanian Swamy filing a case against Jayalalithaa alleging her of having amassed proportions worth Rs 66.5 crore, during her tenure as Tamil Nadu chief minister between 1991 and 1996.

After 18 long years, Amma was finally convicted in the disproportionate assets case on September 27. The AIADMK chief moved the Karnataka HC on September 30, seeking bail and challenging her conviction.

With Tamil Nadu in a frenzy and Amma's bail plea hearing due today, AIADMK workers continue to protest.

At first celebrations erupted when a rumour went out that the bail plea had been approved, but the mood soon turned sour as news of the bail plea getting rejected was confirmed.

Posters in Chennai which warned that Kannadigas living in Tamil Nadu will be held hostage if AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa isn't released from prison caught media attention on Tuesday. One poster in south Chennai had the names of a party MP and a state minister. The AIADMK disowned the posters and workers were seen tearing them down. (HT Photo)
