Jailed AIADMK leader VK Sasikala’s husband, M Natarajan, has undergone liver and kidney transplant, her relative and sidelined party member TTV Dinakaran said on Wednesday. Natarajan had been undergoing treatment at a corporate hospital for the past few days.

“I have received information that the liver and kidney transplant surgery has been performed on uncle,” Dinakaran told reporters here before leaving for the hospital where 74-year-old Natarajan is admitted.

Sasikala had sought a 15-day parole from the Karnataka Prisons authorities to meet Natarajan but the plea was rejected on technical grounds.

Confirming the news, Dinakaran said that he was informed by their advocate that her plea for parole had been “rejected due to insufficient details.”
