The Bengaluru court issued an order on January 22 directing the Tamil Nadu government to pay Rs 5 crore to Karnataka as compensation for the expenses incurred during the disproportionate assets case against the late J Jayalalithaa, former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. Judge HA Mohan specified that the payment should be made through a demand draft (DD).

Despite a request to auction valuable jewelry confiscated from the late CM in connection with the case, the court rejected the plea. Instead, the court instructed the Home Department Secretary and the Police Department of Karnataka to return Jayalalithaa’s belongings to the Tamil Nadu government.

The court addressed a petition filed by RTI activist T Narasimha Murthy, seeking compensation for the funds spent by the Karnataka government in the disproportionate assets case through the auction of seized items from Jayalalithaa. In response, the court ruled that the Tamil Nadu government must pay Rs 5 crore to Karnataka to cover the expenses of conducting the case. However, it decided against the auction of the seized items.

On September 27, 2014, a special court in Bengaluru had sentenced Jayalalithaa to four years in jail and imposed a Rs 100 crore fine in connection with the disproportionate assets case. The court had also directed the sale of Jayalalithaa’s seized valuables through public auction to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) or State Bank of India (SBI), with the proceeds to be adjusted towards the fine. This directive led to Murthy’s petition before the special court. Special Prosecutor Kiran S Javali represented the Karnataka government in the proceedings.
