Chennai: VK Sasikala, recently removed as the chief of Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK has sought a 15-day parole from Parapana Agrahara prison in Bengaluru to meet her ailing husband.
Sasikala’s husband M Natarajan is undergoing treatment in a private hospital in Chennai. He is currently in the liver intensive care unit with decompensated liver disease leading to liver and kidney failure and lung congestion. He is receiving dialysis and other intensive care therapies.
VK Sasikala, long-time aide to J Jayalalithaa, seized control of the AIADMK shortly after the latter’s death in December last year as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister. Named party chief, Sasikala also hoped to become chief minister, but the Supreme Court convicted her and sent her to jail.
