Bangalore: Jailed AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa's health condition is ‘as usual good', a top police officer said on Wednesday, a day after Karnataka High Court rejected her bail plea in the disproportionate assets case.

"Jayalalithaa's health condition as usual is good," Additional Director General of Police (Prisons) KV Gagandeep said.

The Court had on Tuesday rejected her bail plea, saying there are no grounds to give relief to the former Tamil Nadu chief minister and observed that corruption amounts to violation of human rights.

When asked about her blood pressure and sugar levels, Gangandeep said, "They are normal."

He dismissed reports that she had collapsed in the chair after knowing about rejection of her bail on Tuesday evening.

"There is no truth in it," he said.

Meanwhile, DIG (Prisons) M Jaisimha told reporters that Jayalalithaa is eating simple food as per doctor's advice, besides reading newspapers. Jayalalithaa was convicted and sentenced to four years in prison and slapped with a fine of Rs 100 crore on September 27 by a Bangalore special court judge, who found her guilty in the Rs 66.65 crore disproportionate assets case.

Jayalalithaa's close aide Sasikala and her relatives VN Sudhakaran, disowned foster-son of the former chief minister, and Ilavarasi, who have also been sentenced to four years in jail in the 18-year-old case, are in Parappana Agrahara central prison where the AIADMK supremo is lodged.
