The Supreme Court has directed Sasikala Pushpa, expelled AIADMK MP, to cooperate with the investigation into two criminal cases of alleged sexual harassment of her family maids and forging of documents in her anticipatory bail petition lodged by the Tamil Nadu Police.
The Bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice A.M. Khanwilkar asked her to appear before the investigating officer on 3rd and 7th of October.
