Bengaluru, January 27
Expelled AIADMK leader VK Sasikala was released on Wednesday after serving four-year imprisonment in a corruption case here.
The formalities for her release were completed at the state-run Victoria Hospital, where she is undergoing treatment for Covid-19 infection, which she had contracted a week ago, along with her sister-in-law
J Ilavarasi. “She has been formally released,” Parappana Agrahara Jail Superintendent V Sheshamurthy said.
She will remain at the hospital for another three days as mandated under the Covid-19 protocol though she is now asymptomatic and her symptoms have reduced.
“As per protocol, she will be discharged on 10th day (January 30) if she is asymptomatic and free for oxygen support for at least three days,” the hospital said in an official bulletin. — PTI
