Bengaluru: Jailed AIADMK leader VK Sasikala has been granted a 5-day parole and is likely to visit Chennai on Friday to meet her husband who underwent surgery on Thursday, according to reports.
The former AIADMK general secretary had applied for a 15-day parole on Monday saying she wished to be with her husband after his surgery. After examining her application, Parappana Agrahara Prison Superintendent PS Ramesh granted a parole for five days instead.
She will visit her ailing husband M. Natarajan, who had been suffering from critical kidney and liver failures. He had been on the organ transplant waiting list since April and had multiple organ transplants after a donor became available.
The 60-year-old Sasikala’s husband M Natarajan(74) had been admitted to the intensive care unit of Chennai’s Gleneagles Global Hospital.
She has been in jail in Bengaluru since February after the Supreme Court upheld her conviction by a special court in a disproportionate assets case.
Along with Sasikala, her relatives Ilavarasi and VN Sudhakaran are also serving four-year jail terms.
