Former controversial leader of AIADMK and former TamilNadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha’s close aide V K Sasikala was formally released from prison after completing the formalities by the jail authorities.
The procedures for her release were done at the Victoria Hospital, where she is presently undergoing treatment for COVID-19 infection, which she had contracted a week ago. Even though she is released from jail she’ll be undergoing her treatment at the hospital.
According to the hospital’s Medical Superintendent, she will be kept in the hospital for treatment purposes. Sasikala was in the Central Jail in Parappana Agrahara in Bengaluru for four years since February 2017 in connection with the Rs 66 crore disproportionate assets case. A huge crowd of Sasikala supporters lined up outside the Victoria Hospital, raising slogans in her favour and distributed sweets in celebration as reported by PTI.
