BANGALORE: AIADMK  supremo J Jayalalithaa will have to spend at least six days more in jail here as the Karnataka High Court adjourned to October 6 her pleas seeking immediate bail and challenging her conviction in the disproportionate assets case against her.



As the matter came up before the vacation bench, noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani, counsel for Jayalalithaa, pleaded for suspending the sentence pending appeal under Section 389 of the Criminal Procedure Code and for her release on bail.



Section 389 states that pending any appeal by a convicted person, the Appellate Court may order that the execution of the sentence or order appealed against be suspended. Also, if the person is in confinement, that he or she be released on bail, or on own bond.



G Bhavani Singh, who was Special Public Prosecutor in the Special Court in the disproportionate assets case, told the judge that he had not yet received any official notification appointing him as the SPP for the criminal appeal filed in the High Court.



"I have read a report appearing in a daily about my appointment as the SPP to handle the case, but I haven't received any official notification appointing me as the SPP," he said.



"Since I haven't received the notification, I am not authorised to represent the case," Singh added.



Singh sought more time, at which point the vacation bench judge Justice Rathnakala posted the matter for hearing on October 6.
