Sasikala, out of a Bengaluru jail on a five-day parole, visited her husband for the third day on Monday and was apprised of his clinical condition.

Natarajan, is "recovering well" following liver and kidney transplantation, the hospital said, adding he is now in the Liver Intensive Care Unit and requires close observation.

"His transplanted liver and kidney are functioning well," Dr K Ilankumaran, Director, Institute of Liver Disease and Transplantation, Gleneagles Global Health City, said in a release.

His lung congestion is getting better, but still requires intermittent ventilatory support through tracheostomy. He is "fully awake and communicating", Dr Ilankumaran said, adding, "His family has been fully apprised of his present clinical condition."

Sasikala has been lodged in the Parapana Agrahara central jail since February this year after the Supreme Court upheld her conviction by a special court in a disproportionate assets case.
