CHENNAI: Expelled and jailed AIADMK chief VK Sasikala's husband M Natarajan died at a hospital in Chennai following multiple organ failures.
Last week, the 75-year-old was rushed to Gleneagles Global Health City hospital for chest infection.
In January, Natarajan had surrendered before a CBI court here in connection with a case involving evasion of duty on the import of a luxury car from Britain.
The Madras High Court had in November last year upheld a trial court order sentencing Natarajan and three others in the case registered 23 years ago.
In December, the Supreme Court granted bail to Natarajan and asked him to deposit Rs 25 lakh each in its registry. He didn`t appear in the past hearings citing poor health.
