Ben­galuru | New Delhi: AIADMK chief VK Sasikala on Wed­nes­day sur­ren­dered be­fore a trial court in Ben­galuru and was sent to the city’s Parap­pana Agra­hara jail, where she was likely to share cell with two other in­mates. As soon as the Tamil Nadureg­is­tered ve­hi­cles which ac­com­pa­nied Sasikala’s car to Ben­galuru ar­rived in the city, uniden­ti­fied per­sons van­dalised the con­voy. The mis­cre­ants shouted: “You killed Amma.” The po­lice had to re­sort to ba­ton charg­ing to dis­perse the un­ruly crowd. Ear­lier in the day, the Supreme Court re­jected Sasikala’s plea re­quest­ing more time to sur­ren­der, forc­ing her to start her four-year jail term in Ben­galuru later in the day. “We have a l re a dy s p o ken through our j u d g e ment . We don’t want to change one word of it,” Jus­tice Pi­naki Chan­dra Ghose told Sasikala’s lawyer KTS Tulsi, dis­miss­ing the plea out­right. “We said sur­ren­der im­me­di­ately,” he said, be­rat­ing her for seek­ing more time to sur­ren­der.

We don’t want to change one word of it. We said sur­ren­der im­me­di­ately: Jus­tice Pi­naki Chan­dra Ghose
