Despite being housed in a jail, former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa's aide Sasikala has enjoyed multiple perks, which have often become a source for controversy. Sasikala was recorded on CCTV camera footage casually strolling into prison along with her aide Illavarasi, both dressed in civilian clothes and carrying a bag each while male guards let them in.

The video depicting Sasikala's flagrant flouting of jail norms which was recently released has since then gone viral.

According to reports, the video was released by former DIG Prisons D Roopa who exposed the preferential treatment given to the AIADMK leader Sasikala. Roopa was soon shifted to the Traffic and Safety wing after exposing Sasikala's preferential treatment.

Speaking to The Hindu, Roopa said "Male guards are not allowed inside the women’s prison complex. Their deployment is outside the women’s prison premises at the main gate… it has to be investigated where she (Sasikala) is coming from and who permitted it."

Sasikala was sentenced to 4 years of jail after she was convicted in a disproportionate assets case.
