The Supreme Court upheld her conviction in a corruption case.
The two-judge bench comprising Justices P C Ghose and Amitava Roy had directed Sasikala and the two relatives to surrender forthwith to the trial court in Bengaluru and serve the remaining part of four-year jail term.
The verdict had also disqualified Sasikala from becoming a legislator and consequentially she can't be chief minister either for six years from the date of release of prison under the Representation of the People Act.
