AIADMK Chief Sasikala: All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) chief VK Sasikala Natarajan, currently in a Bengaluru jail has demanded better amenities in prison.
She was convicted and sentenced to four years imprisonment by Supreme Court. NDTV reported that she has asked for a cot, mattress, table fan and an attached bathroom for her cell.
AIADMK Chief Sasikala may get the desired amenities if jail authorities allow
V Pugazhendi, secretary of the AIADMK’s Karnataka unit, said that Sasikala was fine, but weak and had applied for better facilities. “We are hoping the authorities will consider her request for better amenities like a cot, mattress, and table fan and attached bathroom so that she can take care of her health till she gets transferred to the Central Jail in Chennai,” she said.
Her sentence can be extended if she doesn’t pay the huge fine
Sasikala had also demanded home cooked food and mineral water earlier which was denied by the jail authorities. She had been put up in Central Jail in the southern outskirts of Bengaluru. She had spent three weeks in jail with former CM Jayalalithaa in 2014 after a lower court sentenced her and the former Tamil Nadu chief Minster in the case.
This time she is behind the bars with her sister-in-law Elavarasi and her nephew VK Sudhkaran. The sentence of her can be extended if she fails to pay the heavy Rs 10crore fine.
