Jayalalithaa’s stress and health issues were mainly caused due to the conviction and imprisonment in the disproportionate assets case, her close aide Sasikala Natrajan has claimed.
Sasikala Natarajan will move the Supreme Court seeking parole to attend a funeral. In her application, she will seek parole to attend the funeral of her nephew T V Mahadevan who died of a cardiac arrest on Saturday.
T T V Dinakaran is the AIADMK’s candidate to contest the R K Nagar by-elections. Dinakaran who is convicted AIADMK interim general secretary Sasikala Natarajan’s nephew will contest the seat that was held by former chief minister J Jayalalithaa and it may be recalled that he was recently asked to pay up a penalty of Rs 25 crore in connection with a Foreign Exchange Regulation Act violation case.
After being convicted along with jailed AIADMK interim general secretary Sasikala Natarajan and Ilavarasi in the disproportionate assets case, he surrendered before a special court on February 15 in Bengaluru following which he has been lodged in jail.
She was then taken to jail where she will be serve the remainder of her four-year term after she was convicted by the Supreme Court in the disproportionate assets case on Tuesday.
The trial court had fined Jayalalithaa alone of Rs 100 crore. The court had fined AIADMK interim general secretary Sasikala Natarajan, Ilavarasi and Sudhakaran Rs 10 crore each, thus making the total fine Rs 130 crore.
