“So far, Rs 7.32 crore has been given away to families of 244 persons who committed suicide and Rs two lakh to four persons towards medical treatment,” said a party release. Overall, the party has disbursed Rs 7.34 crore, it added.

Party supremo J Jayalalithaa had announced a relief of Rs three lakh each to the families of the victims, while appealing to supporters not to resort to extreme steps in the wake of her sentence.

She had been sentenced in the Rs 66.66 crore disproportionate assets case by a Bengaluru court in September last.
