Sasikala may spend 13 more months in jail, if fails to pay fine of Rs. 10 Crore

If Sasikala fails to pay a fine of Rs 10 crore imposed by the Supreme Court, she may have to serve 13 more months in prison.

Jailed in disproportionate assets case Prisoner Number 9234 – VK Sasikala’s trouble doesn’t seem to end. She may have to serve 13 more months in prison, if she fails to pay a fine of Rs 10 crore imposed by the Supreme Court.

On February 14, The Supreme Court convicted Sasikala in the disproportionate assets case, awarding four years jail term to her and her relatives, besides imposing a fine of Rs 10 crore each.

A statement issued by Prisons Superintendent Krishna Kumar asserted, “Sasikala Natarajan will have to serve 13 more months in the jail if she fails to pay the fine on Rs 10 Crore imposed by the Supreme Court.”

The Supreme Court has ordered Sasikala to serve rest of her jail sentence of three years and six months as she has already served almost six months in jail. Now that she has been convicted, she would not also be allowed to contest elections for 10 years.

Like any other prisoner Sasikala has been awarded a small 10 feet by 8 feet cell, fitted with a bathroom. A partition separates her from her sister-in-law Elavarasi, who is also a co-accused in the case. Though she got a fan, blanket, and pillow, no other luxuries were given to her.

Earlier, Sasikala had asked for an A-class cell, a table, a fan and home cooked food. She had also demanded a separate helper, a TV, mineral water, and a geyser. But all her VIP demands were set aside.
