Sathyanarayana Rao, Director General of Police (Prisons) clarified on Thursday that she was not accorded any special privileges.
“We are not giving her any special treatment. As she is undergoing simple imprisonment, she does not have to work. However if she wants, she can take up activities like making candles,” said a prison official.
Sources said Ms Sasikala was provided “ragi-based food” for dinner on Wednesday. On Thursday, she had puliyodharai (tamarind rice) for breakfast.“Later in the day, she was spotted wearing a white sari while taking a stroll on the prison grounds,” said a source from the prison department.
