Sasikala has been in prison since she was convicted in a disproportionate assets case.
The story was first reported by the Hindu newspaper which said the footage had been given to the anti-corruption bureau by the former DIG of Prisons D Roopa.
Roopa had recently alleged that Sasikala was getting special treatment inside prison.
And that she had bribed higher-ups for the special treatment.
The video -- of Sasikala walking into the jail's main entry area -- has raised questions of whether she was allowed to step out of prison and by whom.
