Sasikala, Close aide of Jayalalithaa and Joint convict of DA case who is also serving a four-year sentence at Parappana Agrahara jail in Bengaluru, applied for a 15-day parole to visit her ailing husband M Natarajan.
Natarajan has been undergoing treatment at a hospital in Chennai for a liver problem. He is currently waiting for a liver transplantation, Sasikala’s nephew and sidelined AIADMK leader TTV Dinakaran had said.
On Monday, Dinakaran told reporters The (Karnataka) Prisons Department will decide on the number of days the parole will be given for.
Edapadi Government recently booked Dinakaran for sedition, along with 16 other AIADMK MLAs supporting him, for allegedly distributing pamphlets, blaming the Centre and State governments for the death of a Dalit teen who committed suicide after she failed to clear the NEET.
At least five AIADMK leaders and functionaries were arrested, including former AIADMK legislator S E Venkatachalam. A senior officer said Dinakaran may also be arrested.
The police said the pamphlets, carrying Dinakaran’s photographs, were distributed in Salem last week.
The police said the case was registered Monday after a local AIADMK leader from the unified camp led by CM Edappadi K Palaniswami lodged a complaint. Slamming the sedition charge, Dinakaran said the admk rule will come to end soon called Palaniswami a traitor.
Sasikala may be given parole on Oct 5th said Prison Sources.
