Jayalalithaa remains indoors in jail
Bangalore, Oct 15: Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa has reportedly not stepped out of her high-security cell ever since her arrest a fortnight ago.

Jayalalithaa has remained in the women's prison inside the Central Prison at Parapanna Agrhara here and not stepped out even to even breathe fresh air.

An office from jail said, "Madam stays inside the cell and does not come out. She has minimum interaction with prison officials, who routinely call on her to check her security and health. She only interacts with the prison doctors and nursing staff on a daily basis. She is having prison meals and is comfortable."

Jayalalithaa applied for bail, which was adjourned, and now the Karnataka government has said that the court alone can decide on the shifting of Jayalalithaa to Tamil Nadu.

"Both, Karnataka and TN government cannot do it as an appeal is pending before the Karnataka HCs," home minister K.J. George said in Bengaluru.

"If the TN government approaches the HC or SC there will be no objection from our side to shift her," he said.

Jayalalithaa and other three have been found guilty as they are convicted in accumulating Rs 66 crore wealth disproportionate to known sources of her income from 1991-96 in her first term as Chief Minister.
