BANGALORE: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Friday contended before the special court trying the Rs 66-crore disproportionate asset case against her that the jewellery and other articles seized from her have been “over valued” and prayed for their “revaluation”.

Deposing before the court for the second consecutive day, she said the jewellery, silverware and footwear have been over valued by Tamil Nadu’s Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption and she did not possess all the sarees confiscated. Jayalalithaa, who answered 567 questions in the last two days, said the jewellery seized had been acquired by her much before the “check period” and much before she became chief minister.

DVAC has given “totally an inflated figure” on the value of sarees, she told special court Judge B M Mallikarjunaiah during recording of evidence, adding that she was drawing a salary of Rs one per month when she was chief minister.

Jayalalithaa disputed that huge assets have been acquired by various companies, in which she was only a “silent partner.”(PTI)
