Sri lankan refugees in Tamil Nadu stage a protest in support of Jayalalitha.
30 Sri Lankan Tamils observed a fast inside the special camp in Tiruchi to express their protest against the conviction of AIADMK general Secretary J Jayalalitha.
According to the Hindu News Paper the inmates observed the fast from around 10 am to 5.30 pm yesterday.
AIADMK member’s offered special prayers at various temples in the district for the release of their party leader.
The Karnataka High Court has adjourned Jayalalithaa's bail plea to October 7th, 2014.
Jayalalithaa has been in a Bangalore prison since Saturday, when a trial court found her guilty of corruption.
Jayalalithaa has dismissed the allegations against her as politically motivated and filed a criminal revision petition challenging her conviction in the High Court yesterday.
Jayalalithaa was in the middle of her third term as chief minister when she was found guilty of misusing her office during her first stint from 1991 to 1996 to accumulate vast wealth that could not be accounted for by her declared sources of income.
