Sudhakaran, convicted along with Jayalalithaa’s aide Shahikala, was sentenced to 4 years in jail along with penalty of Rs. 10,00,10,000.

Shashikala was released on January 27 this year after she paid the fine. However, Sudhakaran had to serve nearly one year more in prison for non-payment of the fine.

Sudhakaran was entitled to 89 days of parole, which he didn’t avail. Considering this, his jail term, which was supposed to end in January 2022, ended on Saturday. Along with the fine amount, Sudhakaran’s wife paid another fine of Rs. 10,000 to the court.

Sudhakaran is the younger brother of AMMK leader T. T. V. Dhinakaran. He was adopted by Jayalalithaa and a gala wedding ceremony was held when he got married to the grand daughter of legendary actor Shivaji Ganeshan. The marriage made news for all the wrong reasons before Jayalalithaa disowned him in 1996.
