Another 13 months jail for Sasikala if she doesn’t pay Rs 10 crore fine

Bengaluru: Interim general secretary of Tamil Nadu’s ruling AIADMK, Sasikala, who is serving a jail term after her conviction in a disproportionate assets case, will have to serve 13 more months in prison if she fails to pay a fine of Rs 10 crore imposed by the Apex Court.

Sasikala is currently serving her sentence at the Parapanna Agrahara prison

“Sasikala Natarajan will have to pay Rs 10 crore and if she fails to pay the punitive amount imposed by the Supreme Court, she will have to serve 13 more months in the jail,” Prisons Superintendent Krishna Kumar said in a statement.

Sasikala is currently serving her sentence at the Parapanna Agrahara prison here.

It may be mentioned here that the Supreme Court had on February 14 restored Sasikala’s conviction+ in the disproportionate assets case, awarding four years jail term to her and her relatives, besides imposing a fine of Rs 10 crore each.

The AIADMK leader will be in jail for three years and about 11 months, out of the four years sentence awarded by the trial court.

Sassikala had earlier spent 21 days in Parappana Agrahara jail after conviction by the trial court in September 2014 along with J Jayalalithaa.

“The convicts–Sasikala, Illavarasi and Sudhakaran–are getting (the same) treatment in the jail as others are getting and they have not been given any special treatment,” said the Prisons Superintendent.

He also stated that food prepared in jail was being served to them and prison doctors were regularly conducting medical checkups and administering medicines to them.
