The Karnataka Prisons department on Tuesday rejected Sasikala's parole application to visit her ailing husband.
Superintendent Somashekar cited inadequacies in the application and sought more details and affidavits. He asked the counsel to make a fresh application.
Earlier, the prison authorities were considering a plea by jailed Sasikala to release her on parole for 15 days to meet her ailing husband, who is awaiting a liver transplant at a Chennai hospital.
"Yesterday, we received an application from Sasikala, urging us to release her on a 15-day parole. She has said that her husband is unwell and admitted to a hospital in Chennai. Our legal cell is considering the plea," Parappana Agrahara Prison Superintendent P S Ramesh had said.
