Sasikala applies parole for 15 days

VK Sasikala, who is Bangalore prison currently in a corruption case, has requested parole for 15 days to attend to her husband M Natarajan, who is critically ill.

Mr Natarajan is admitted at a hospital in Chennai and is expected to undergo a liver transplant. The 74-year-old, who has suffered multiple organ failure, has reportedly asked to see his wife.

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, Ms Sasikala also hoped to become chief minister, but the Supreme Court convicted her and sent her to jail.

Before she left, Ms Sasikala appointed her nephew TTV Dhinakaran as the party’s number 2. Both were evicted last month after factions in the party led by current Chief Minister E Palaniswami and his predecessor O Panneerselvam re-united. Ms Sasikala and her nephew are fighting back.

VK Sasikala has been married for 33 years to M Natarajan, a former government public relations officer who had first introduced her to Ms Jayalalithaa. Later, Mr Natarajan was among about a dozen Sasikala relatives expelled by Ms Jayalalithaa from her Poes Garden home; she accused them of working against her interests. Mr Dhinakaran was among those thrown out.
