Bangalore, Oct 3: Former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa, who has been jailed in connection to the disproportionate assets case, has been moved to another cell.

Even tender coconuts with a loaf of bread and milk were supplied to her on Thursday, Oct 2.

Jayalalithaa still opts to maintain silent apart from brief chats with visiting jail doctors. For the remaining time, she prefers to watch TV channels, sources said.

"Jayalalithaa requested for a change in cell as she said she wanted to be all alone. We shifted her to a single room on the first floor of the women's barracks," sources said.

They added, "She had lemon rice and curd along with fruits. Since she is diabetic, Jayalalithaa has avoided regular jail food including morning breakfast, usually upma, and rice items. She has been given an air-cooler and reads Tamil magazines regularly. Citing security reasons, she has skipped her morning and evening walks."

Four supporters from Tirunelveli shaved their heads near the central jail in Parappana Agrahara on Thursday, demanding early release of their leader.

45 AIADMK MPs on Thursday observed a fast in front of Mahatma Gandhi's statue in Parliament complex in New Delhi on Thursday.

Jayalalithaa was sentenced to four years in jail in an 18-year-old corruption case and fined Rs 100 crore by a special court in Bangalore on September 27.
