Bengaluru: Expelled AIADMK leader VK Sasikala was formally released from prison after serving 4-year jail-term on Wednesday. She was released after the jail officials completed the formalities.

The procedures for her release were done at the Victoria Hospital, where she is presently undergoing treatment for COVID-19 infection, which she had contracted a week ago, along with her sister-in-law J Ilavarasi.

“Sasikala has been officially released as on 11 AM today. She was shifted to Victoria Hospital on 21st Jan and was tested positive. As per protocol, she will be discharged on 10th day if she is asymptomatic and free of oxygen support for at least 3 days,” Bangalore Medical College authorities said.

Confirming the development, Raja Senthoor Pandian, the advocate of Sasikala, said, “All formalities have been completed. She is set free from all legal formalities. She will remain at the hospital as per medical advice.”

The close aide of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa was in the Central Jail in Parappana Agrahara here for four years since February 2017 in connection with the Rs 66 crore disproportionate assets case.

A huge crowd of Sasikala supporters lined up outside the Victoria Hospital, raising slogans in her favour and distributed sweets in celebration.
