Sasikala, serving a four-year jail term after her conviction in a disproportionate assets case, will have to serve an extra year in prison if she fails to pay the Rs. 10 crore fine imposed on her by the Supreme Court. Earlier on February 15, Sasikala was sent to Bengaluru's Parappana Agrahara jail. She reached the jail in a big convoy to surrender before the court. The registrar of Karnataka High Court ordered the shifting of the court to Bengaluru's Parappana Agrahara jail. Sasikala requested the apex court to provide A-class cell, medical facility and a place for meditation. She has been given a cell that will be shared with two other inmates. Sasikala's sister-in-law Ilavarasi, also convicted by the top court, traveled with her from Chennai to Bengaluru. As per law, she has also been barred from holding public office for a further period of six years. (ANI)
