India's Supreme Court handed down a four-year prison sentence Tuesday to the incoming chief minister of Tamil Nadu state for corruption in a ruling that prevents her from taking up her post.

VK Sasikala was found guilty of possessing "disproportionate assets" in a long-running case that also involved her mentor Jayalalithaa Jayaram, the state's former chief minister who died in December.
