Chennai: The parole application of V.K. Sasikala was rejected by Karnataka Prisons department on October 3.
According to ANI, Karnataka Prisons department rejected Sasikala’s parole application to visit her ailing husband.
Superintendent Somashekar cited inadequacies in application and sought more details and affidavits and asked counsel to make fresh application.
Sasikala, recently sacked from Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK, had requested parole for 15 days to attend to her husband M. Natarajan, who is critically ill.
Sasikala has been lodged in a Bengaluru prison since February 2017 after being convicted in a disproportionate assets case.
74-year-old, Natarajan is admitted at a private hospital in Chennai and is expected to undergo a liver transplant. He has suffered multiple organ failure.
Natrajan, who was a government PRO, has expressed his willingness to see Sasikala.
Though Sasikala and Natarajan had been living separately since 1990s, he had accompanied her when she surrendered before the prison authorities on February 15 after she was convicted in the Dearness Allowance case.
