Sasikala granted five-day parole

Jailed AIADMK leader V.K Sasikala was granted parole for five days by prison authorities in Karnataka to meet her husband, who underwent a liver and kidney transplant at a Chennai hospital.

Sasikala had sought parole for 15 days, but she has been granted for five days, jail authorities said.

After her first application was rejected on “technical grounds” on October three for not producing certain requisite documents, Sasikala had filed a fresh plea for parole.

Sasikala’s husband, M Natarajan (74) underwent the liver and kidney transplant on October 3 with the organs harvested from a brain-dead youth, according to Gleneagles Global Health City hospital in Chennai.

Sasikala has been in Parapana Agrahara central jail in Bengaluru since February this year after the Supreme Court upheld her conviction by a special court in a disproportionate assets case.

Her relatives Ilavarasi and V.N Sudhakaran are also serving four-year jail terms.
