The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had earlier booked Sasikala and her relative V Bhaskaran for allegedly purchasing equipment for a TV channel in 1996 from a foreign country where they apparently routed payments via illegal means.
Sasikala is currently serving a jail term after she was convicted in a disproportionate asset case and lodged in Parappana Agrahara central, Bengaluru.
She was supposed to appear before the court on November 30. However, the prison authorities reportedly failed to produce her due to health reasons.
