Natarajan condition critical, Sasikala to come out on parole

Jailed AIADMK leader VK Sasikala’s husband, M Natarajan, is critical and on ventilator support at Gleneagles Global Health City in Chennai.

It is said that Sasikala has applied for parole and would come out of Parpana Agrahara prison in Bengaluru to visit her husband.

“Natarajan Maruthappa was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU), Gleneagles Global (Hospital), on March 16 with severe chest infection,” a statement from the hospital said on Sunday.

Natarajan is on ventilator support and his condition is critical, the hospital’s chief operating officer, Shanmuga Priyan, said.

Natarajan underwent a seven-and-a-half hour kidney and liver transplant surgery on October 3. He got organs from 19-year-old Karthik N, who was declared brain dead after a road accident in Pudukottai district.

Sasikala, serving a four-year imprisonment in a disproportionate assets case in the central prison in Bengaluru, had visited her husband after obtaining emergency parole last year.
