Sasikala surrenders, supporters clash with police

Bengaluru: AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala, held guilty for corruption, on Wednesday surrendered before a trial court at a prison here.

One official said Sasikala underwent a medical check-up

Sasikala gave herself up at the Central Jail on the city’s southern outskirts with her relatives Elavarasi and VN Sudhakaran after reaching from Chennai by road, officials said.

As the long-time confidante of the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa reached the prison complex, clashes erupted between AIADMK supporters and police personnel.

The surrender came a day after the Supreme Court upheld her conviction in a case of holding assets disproportionate to known sources of income.

Also held guilty were her two relatives and the late Jayalalithaa.
