BENGALURU: A day after her imprisonment, a few MLAs and supporters of Sasikala were a disappointed lot as authorities at the Parappana Agrahara Central Jail did not allow them to meet her on Thursday. Her aides stood at the gate for more than three hours in the morning and left for their hotels, disappointed.

Special security has been deployed around Sasikala's cell and she is under constant observation.

Meanwhile, the AIADMK general secretary had puliyogare (tamarind rice) for breakfast and read one English and two Tamil newspapers. She also meditated for a while. She had requested for a place to meditate, a senior official said.

Doctors carried out a routine medical check-up on Sasikala and her sister-in-law and fellow convict Ilavarasi after breakfast. Sasikala was given hot water for her bath while Ilavarasi preferred cold water.

Sasikala used a landline phone to contact her family and the call was recorded, the official added.

They had ragi balls and rice for lunch. Sasikala did not wish to meet any party worker or follower. She had black tea without sugar twice on the first day.

Prison authorities declined to reveal the details of her telephonic conversation with her family members. 

According to sources, Sasikala did not sleep properly on Wednesday night. She woke up twice and was constantly talking to Ilavarasi.

Sasikala and Ilavarasi slept on the floor as there is no cot in the cell. The cell has an attached bathroom. They are allowed to come out only for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

There are four empty cells around Sasikala's cell and no inmates can watch her movements.
