The lawyers from Tamil Nadu have alleged that the Karnataka government conspired against former TN Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa by preventing her from seeking bail.

"The delay in issuing the appointment order promoted a large group of lawyers, who had come from Tamil Nadu to allege that the Karnataka government conspired to prevent Jayalalithaa from securing relief," Hindustan Times reported.

Jayalalithaa's bail plea was filed in Karnataka High Court and the hearing was scheduled for Tuesday, however, it had to be postponed as the vacation Bench, which had to hear her plea, was not informed by the Karnataka Government about 30 September hearing.

Special Public Prosecutor Bhavani Singh, who got her convicted on Saturday, said he has not yet received a formal notification from the state government, resulting which the hearing had to be postponed until Monday, 6 October.

"I have not received a formal notification of my appointment as prosecutor for appeal. I communicated this factual position to the court," Singh was quoted by The Hindu as saying.

Jayalalithaa, who has been convicted for four years in disproportionate assets case, has been allotted a single cell in Bangalore's Parappana Agrahara Central Prison.
