Income tax case against Jayalalithaa: Hearing adjourned to August 21 [Chennai] [Times of India]

(Times of India Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CHENNAI: The court of additional chief metropolitan magistrate (economic offences) in Chennai on Thursday adjourned hearing in the income tax case against Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa to August 21.

The court adjourned the matter after her counsel informed it that her application for compounding the alleged offences was pending before the income tax department Judge R Dakshinamurthy allowed the petition filed under Section 309 (power of the court to postpone the proceedings) of the CrPC and adjourned the matter.

The income tax department had filed a criminal case against erstwhile Sasi Enterprises and its partners -- Jayalalithaa and Sasikala -- for their failure to file returns for two consecutive years (1991-92 and 1992-93). The IT department alleged that they had committed offences punishable under provision of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

The case picked up momentum after the Supreme Court fixed a six-month time frame for the economic offences court in Chennai to complete the trial.
