AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa’s lawyers will file an appeal today against the special court verdict sentencing her to four-years imprisonment in a disproportionate assets case and also seek her release on bail.

AIADMK Rajya Sabha Member A. Navaneetha-krishnan stated that a bail application would be moved in the Karnataka High Court.

Meanwhile, Panneerselvam, who was the state finance minister, will take over for the second term as chief minister, in similar circumstances.

In 2000, he was handpicked by Jayalalithaa when she had to step down after being convicted a land scam.

Panneerselvam was among the few party men who went to meet Ms Jayalalithaa at Bangalore's Central jail yesterday.

Questions have been raised about whether he will operate as a proxy ruler for Jayalalithaa, who is known to take all decisions in the party and before whom ministers are said to prostrate themselves.

Meanwhile, according to Indian media sources about 16 residents of Tamil Nadu state have committed suicide following the sentence given to Jayalalitha Jayaram.

Among them is a 19 year old student who has committed suicide by hanging.
