First night in jail : Sasikala sleeps on floor, no special facilities


Bengaluru, Feb 16 (Agencies) : AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala Natarajan, who was sentenced to 4 years in jail by the Supreme Court in a Disproportionate Assets (DA) case, slept on the floor on her first night in the Parappana Agrahara Central Jail in Bengaluru.

According to a report in NDTV, jail authorities refused to provide Sasikala with any of the facilities she had requested for. Sasikala had asked for a Class A cell citing health problems, and non-veg food twice a week. She also wanted space to meditate and round-the-clock medical help if needed.

"There will not be any special privileges for Sasikala. At the most she will be counseled so she can adjust to the jail," an official had said yesterday.

However, Sasikala reportedly had tamarind rice with chutney in the morning for breakfast today. She also 'meditated for a few minutes', jail officials said.

A decision on providing her a cot to sleep on will reportedly be taken by doctors today.

Sasikala is to be assigned with the task of candle making in jail, said reports. She is said to be sharing the cell with her sister-in-law Ilavarasi, who was also convicted.

The report said that Sasikala was also eager to receive news of political developments from Chennai while in jail.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao on Thursday invited Sasikala loyalist E Palanisamy to form the government.

    Why is the media not publishing news of all the prisoners in jails about their condition and the facilities given to them? Why focus only on Sashikala who deserves to be there and should be treated like every common prisoner? Why periodic bulletins about her stay, food, visitors, medical report, etc..? Sasikala should be treated like every other prisoner. Special privileges should not be extended to politicians and celebrities who get parole at the drop of the hat and eat the food of their choice. Let"Justice not only be done but also seen to be done" in prisons too.

    She may have some problems to settle to the new atmosphere and once settled she may find more comfort in jail than at her home for a change

    There are many Shshikalas and also other male counterparts throughout india.Only non vegetarian Shashikalas face cases against them.Is there any Subramanya Swamis to file case against vegetarian Shashikals? We are not justifying this Shashikala,but out of 125 crores only one Shashikala and Ilaivarasi?! Mera Bharath Mahan.Only so called 'Inteligent people rule the country even though they are in neglible numbers.

    Sashikala first night in jail,explaining all details.why so much ?All are spending their first night same way .But I find govt.should provide to sick people one bed atleast.(am dont mean Sasikala or any particular person)Need not be any comfort type.But some minister or vip get one bed.How come so?She will get used to it,and when comesout ,she must realize how other people suffer without money and she enjoys without earning.Let her donate her money to all poor ones and live like in jail.

    I feel every inmate deserves to be given a bed to sleep on ? Sleeping on floor is medieval treatment.
    Every inmate should have access to newspaper and books. Jail term is a punishment, but lets not forget jail term also should provide inmates an avenue where they can reform. Basic nutrition, health care, access to sunlight, bathroom, news and self improvement programs needs to be implemented. Also skill development can be taught so that once the prisoners are out, they can earn by themselves without resorting to crime. Of course Sasikala doesn't need all of these , but every inmate should have rights to news, bed, restroom, sunlight and work.

    @ Karthik,

    Absolutely true.

    Every prisoner should be reformed by the time they complete their jail term.

    Plenty of human rights abuse in this area of judicial system in India.

    Indian Jails and Jailers both need to be reformed first!!

    Jai Hind !

    Prisoners sleeping on the floor is draconian way.

    There is a possibility where prison officials pocket rations, amenities granted to prisoners in the first place.

    Very sad...... owner of 5000 cores (illegally earned) sleeping on the floor. I have less than 1 core (legal money) and I am not sleeping on the floor.... but on a proper bed.

    This is the result of illegal assets...... i.e. you can't enjoy.... but some one will enjoy your money.

    MLA/MP or ministers will get VIP treatment in Jail... I.e. special cook or food from home, special room, news paper, special security etc. Sasikala is not MLA/MP or minister.... She wanted to have one day CM to get all these facilities. Now she will be treated as ordinary culprit.

    No tamarind rice please. She has more Pitta. Please give her only two lota Ganji.
    Sleeping on floor is better, will bring better result than meditation. So no cot.
    Communication with outer word/access to TV, print media will spoil her mental health. So no news paper. She can close her eyes medicate in cell.
    Sharing cell with others, will effect her privacy. So keep her alone in cell with candle light for ambience.
    Keep all of her sympathisers away from jail, as they are eager to make her from Jail CM to TN CM, through sympathy votes and TN people are good in that.

    The above facilities at Jail may convert her in to humble human being after Jail term and she may denounce and surrender her all ill got wealth for poor people benefit and gain moksha.
