Bengaluru : AIADMK leader V.K. Sasikala returned to Bengaluru Central Jail on Thursday after the five-day parole granted to meet her ailing husband in a Chennai hospital sources said.
“Sasikala has returned to the prison on Thursday at around 4.30 p.m. within the stipulated time,” jail sources said.
Sasikala, 60, was granted a five-day parole on October 6, and had to return to the prison by October 12 evening, as directed by the jail authorities.
During the parole period she had visited Geneagles Global Hospital in Chennai where her husband Natarajan, 74, had undergone liver and kidney transplant last week.
Though Sasikala applied for 15 days parole last week, the prison authority had permitted her to be out of jail for only five days with conditions.
A close confident of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa, Sasikala is serving a four-year sentence since February 15 after the Supreme Court on February 14 upheld her conviction in a corruption case by a trial court in September 2015 here.
