Bangalore: AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa did not show any excitement, but was all smiles when she heard about her release from the jail here, where she was lodged after being convicted in an illegal assets case.

"She is a very strong lady. She was calm and composed and did not show any excitement when I approached her with the release copy issued by the special court. She was all smiles, though," Karnataka DIG Prisons M Jaisimha told PTI here.

"The only thing which I heard was Jayalalithaa shared joy with Sasikala and Elavarasi, who were lodged in the women's barracks. And there is no truth in sweets being distributed after the news of her release reached jail premises," he said.


Jayalalithaa's close aide Sasikala, her relatives Elavarasi and Sudhakaran were also released from jail today, a day after the Supreme Court granted them bail in the 18-year-old disproportionate assets case in which they were sentenced to four years in prison.

Quoting Jayalalithaa's parting remarks, Jaisimha said "I really appreciate the cooperation extended to me by the jail authorities. I did not face any problems all these days. Thank you very much - Good bye." After a night's sleep, Jayalalithaa began her day today as usual, reading newspapers and also meditating in her cell, Jaisimha said.
