Expelled AIADMK leader V K Sasikala was released on Wednesday after serving four years imprisonment in a corruption case at a prison here.
The formalities for her release were done 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. “Yes, she has been formally released,” Parappana Agrahara Jail Superintendent V Sheshamurthy told PTI.
According to hospital sources, prison officials sporting PPE kits completed the formalities inside the COVID-19 ward of the hospital.
However, she would remain at the Victoria hospital for another three days as mandated under the COVID-19 protocol, though she is now asymptomatic and her symptoms have reduced.
