If security is Sasikala’s concern, then a transfer to Tihar will keep her safe
It has been a week since AIADMK interim general secretary Sasikala Natarajan was convicted and sent to the Bengaluru central prison after being convicted in the Rs 66.65 crore disproportionate assets case. The media is going to town with stories on what she wears and what she eats and that she is desperately seeking a transfer to a jail in Tamil Nadu.
A prisoner swap programme is available and if both Karnataka and Tamil Nadu agree for a transfer. However, with a (Tamil Nadu) government in place that is so ‘friendly’ to her, the chances are remote.
