The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed the Karnataka government's plea seeking review of its verdict by which it had abated the proceedings in a disproportionate assets case against late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

"Applications for personal hearing of review petitions before the court are rejected.

We have considered the review petitions filed by the State of Karnataka on merits. In our opinion, no case for review of our order dated February 14, 2017, is made out. Consequently, the review petitions are dismissed on merits," a bench of Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy said.

The Karnataka government had on March 21 moved the apex court against its February 14 judgement contending that once the proceedings were abated, it would not be possible to recover the fine of Rs 100 crore imposed on the late leader which was part of the punishment awarded to her in the case.

The apex court had on February 14 convicted AIADMK chief V K Sasikala and two others in the case, while abating proceedings against Jayalalithaa as she was no more.
