Sasikala leaves Chennai for Bengaluru prison after parole to meet husband ends

India October 12(IM): Following the completion of her 5-day parole to meet her ailing husband in Chennai, AIADMK leader VK Sasikala today left for Bengaluru to return to the Parappana Agrahara Prison.The deposed leader Sasikala left for Bengaluru by road on Thursday morning from the residence of Krishna Priya, her close relative in Chennai's T Nagar area.According to Gleneagles Global Health City, where Natarajan (74) underwent organ transplantations on October 4 and a tracheostomy two days later, he is recovering well.On each of the 5 days during her parole period, Sasikala visited her husband M Natarajan, who underwent liver and kidney transplantation at the hospital. The AIADMK leader, who was removed from the party last month by Chief Minister E Palaniswami-led camp, is travelling in a car, which had to halt at several locations in Chennai like the Trade Centre point as the area was teeming with party cadres to greet and wish her well.Also, as was witnessed during the past five days while she was in Chennai, several women cadres carried their newborns in their arms and requested Sasikala to name them.After halting at several locations, her convoy took the Bengaluru highway.SASIKALA EXPECTED TO REACH BENGALURU BY 6 PM

The 60-year-old leader is expected to reach Bengaluru on time to report at the prison complex by 6 pm in keeping with the parole condition.Sasikala has been lodged in the Parapana Agrahara central jail since February this year after the Supreme Court upheld her conviction by a special court in a disproportionate assets case.Her relatives Ilavarasi and VN Sudhakaran are also serving four-year jail terms in the case.Granted emergency parole from October 7 to 11, she was asked to adhere to several conditions, including a gag order on interacting with the media.Sasikala's visit came at a time when her nephew and sidelined AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran and the ruling camp led by Palaniswami and deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam are fighting it out to get the two leaves symbol, which was frozen by the Election Commission.
