Hyderabad: The Karnataka Prisons department on Friday granted parole to former AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala for 5 days to visit her ailing husband.
The prisons department had earlier rejected her parole application on September 3.
60-year-old Sasikala's husband M Natarajan is admitted to the intensive care unit of a corporate hospital since September following a kidney and liver failure. He is awaiting a donor for liver transplantation and a kidney transplantation, according to doctors.
Sasikala has been in jail since February after the Supreme Court upheld her conviction by a special court in a disproportionate assets case. Along with Sasikala, her relatives Ilavarasi and VN Sudhakaran are also serving a four-year jail term.
