Even as the AIADMK's vociferous protests against Jayalalithaa's conviction continue in Chennai and New Delhi, more damning details are emerging from the court order which found her guilty of unexplained wealth.

That wealth, the court found was used to acquire 3,000 acres of land assets, mainly in Tamil Nadu.

A crucial witness testimony by a District Registrar named Rajagopal in the North Chennai land office reveals that in 1994, he was asked to visit the chief minister's Poes Garden residence, where he was told by VN Sudhakaran, another accused in the case, to tour Tamil Nadu and identify plots of land for sale.

Sudhakaran is the nephew of Sasikala, Jayalalithaa's associate.

The land was purchased by companies connected to Jayalalithaa at rates far below government guidelines, but Rajagopal went ahead and registered them.

Rajagopal admitted to working closely with another key witness, a real estate agent in Chennai's Anna Nagar called Siva, who also testified to his role in the purchase of large tracts of land in the state, particularly of over 1,000 acres in Tirunelveli district acquired between August 1994 and March 1995.
