Bengaluru/IBNS: Expelled AIADMK leader and former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa aide VK Sasikala has tested positive for coronavirus and shifted to a COVID-19 intensive care unit, media reports said on Thursday.

Sasikala, 63, who had earlier tested negative for Covid-19, was stable but she will be undergoing various tests and monitored for now.

The Jayalalithaa aide, who is serving sentence in the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison in the Bengaluru city, was rushed to the state-run Bowring and Lady Curzon hospital on Thursday afternoon.

She was referred to another hospital for a CT Scan and other tests, Director of the Bowring Hospital Dr Manoj Kumar HV said on Thursday.

Sasikala, who was serving a term in prison in a Disproportionate Assets case, is awaiting her release.

Sasikala's oxygen saturation level was 80 (against the normal of 95 and above) on Wednesday evening after she was admitted to the hospital.
