New Delhi:

AIADMK leader VK Sasikala on Tuesday was granted 15-day parole to attend her husband Natarajan Maruthappa's last rites.

Sasikala is currently serving a four-year sentence at Bengaluru's Parappana Agrahara Central Jail after being convicted in a disproportionate assets case in 2017.

Sasikala's husband Natarajan Maruthappa passed away on Tuesday at around 1.35 am at the Gleneagles Global hospital in Chennai. According to the death certificate, the 76-year-old died due to multiple-organ failure.

Reportedly, Sasikala is expected to travel to Thanjavur directly by road for the funeral.

Natarajan was admitted to the hospital on Saturday with a severe chest infection and was put on a ventilator. He had undergone a kidney transplant last year. The body was kept at his Besant Nagar residence in Chennai for people to pay homage.
