VK Sasikala's nephew TTV Dhinakaran on Thursday said that her health was stable.
Former AIADMK leader VK Sasikala who tested positive for COVID-19 is being treated under standard COVID-19 protocol, said Victoria Hospital Bengaluru on Friday.
"With the diagnosis of COVID-19 severe pneumonia with Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and hypothyroidism, the patient is being treated with standard COVID-19 protocol at the Trauma Care Centre of Victoria Hospital," read the health bulletin.
VK Sasikala's nephew TTV Dhinakaran on Thursday said that her health was stable. "I have reliable information that VK Sasikala's health is stable and the doctors are looking after her. She is being monitored properly. She needs oxygen due to some secondary infections. Doctors are still deciding on whether CT scans are required or not," TTV Dhinakaran told ANl.
The 63-year-old leader was a close associate of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, late Jayalalitha. She has been serving a sentence in a disproportionate assets case.
In 2019, the Income Tax Department had attached properties worth Rs 1,600 crore belonging to the former AIADMK leader under the provisions of the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Act.
Following her being sent to prison, a controversy had broken out after a committee report alleged that VK Sasikala had been receiving special treatment inside the prison.
