VK Sasikala, aide of late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, was formally released from Parappana Agrahara prison in Bengaluru after serving full term in a disproportionate assets case.
“We do not have plans to shift her to a private hospital. We are hoping her to return to Tamil Nadu by the first week of February,” said Jai Anand, Sasikala’s nephew, while addressing the media. AMMK sources said that though Sasikala has been declared asymptomatic, another COVID test is scheduled on January 30 and only if the results turn negative will she be brought to TN. Sasikala was convicted in the misappropriation of assets case, in 2017, along with Jayalalithaa, Sasikala’s sister-in-law Ilavarasi and Jayalalithaa’s foster son VN Sudhakaran.
