A jailed top woman politician of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu's ruling AIADMK party was Friday granted parole to visit her ailing husband.

She is expected to leave for Chennai in the afternoon.

Sasikala has also been ordered to not interact with the media during this period.

Though Sasikala walks out of jail for the first time after eight months of jail time, her parole request -dated October 3 - was declined due to insufficient documentation. He was admitted to hospital in September after multiple organ failure.

Sidelined AIADMK leader VK Sasikala was on Friday reportedly granted five-day parole by Karnataka jail authorities.

Tamil Nadu Police had earlier issued an NOC to the Karnataka government for granting parole to Sasikala, he said. Two days ago, Sasikala had applied again for a 15-day parole after submitting the requisite medical documents along with details and stages of her pending cases. Krishnapriya is the daughter of J Ilavarasi who is lodged in the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison in Bengaluru with Sasikala and Sasikala and Sasikala's relative VN Sudhakaran. She also said that they did not take any money for donating her brother's organs and they did not know who got the organs too.

Sasikala's husband M Natarajan (74) had recently undergone liver and kidney transplant from a brain-dead donor. After Jayalalithaa's passing in December 2016, her aide Sasikala placed herself as the general secretary of AIADMK.

Just as Sasikala's parole application was being processed, the EPS government made an attempt to scare Camp Dinakaran by slapping sedition cases against the TTV and 16 of his supporters for having distributed NEET pamphlets.
