In a major setback for AIADMK General Secretary V.K. Sasikala, who was aspiring to be the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister was convicted in a disproportionate assets case.
Restoring the judgment of the trial court convicting and sentencing her and her two relatives - V.N. Sudhakaran and Elavarasi, a bench of Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Justice Amitava Roy set aside a Karnataka High Court order acquitting the three and late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa.
Here's taking a look at Twitterati taking a hilarious dig as Sasikala gets convicted.
The immediate fallout of the top court verdict is that Sasikala is out of the electoral field for 10 years - four years when would be in incarceration and six years of disqualification under the Representation of Peoples Act after her release.
People on Twitter are amused that the judgement coincided with Valentine's day and are even calling it the best surprise ever.
Amul also didn't leave a chance to take a dig at the Tamil Nadu situation right now. The trial court had sentenced Sasikala to four years of jail term and imposed a fine of Rs 10 crore. The trial court verdict convicting late Jayalalithaa, Sasikala and two others had come on September 27, 2014.
